Manhattan, NY 11211
Williamsburg
Williamsburg is a neighborhood in northern Brooklyn, bounded by Greenpoint to the north, Bedford-Stuyvesant to the south, Bushwick to the east, and the East River to the west. A rezoning of the neighborhood in 2005 facilitated residential development, which has been most pronounced on the waterfront. As of 2015, factories that made sugar, shoe polish, mustard and musical instruments were in the process of being converted or have been converted into loft-style housing. Contemporary upscale condominiums include the Edge at 34 North 7th Street and Toll Brothers' Northside Piers at 164 Kent Avenue. The L train of the New York City subway system services Williamsburg. Its Bedford Avenue station is the first stop outside downtown Manhattan. -GB
