City of Williamsburg
Williamsburg is a neighborhood in the New York borough of Brooklyn, which borders Greenpoint, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick. The neighborhood is part of the Brooklyn Community Board 1. The neighborhood is served by the 90th precinct of the NYPD In the City Council the western and northern part is represented by the 33rd District. And the eastern part of the neighborhood by the 34th District. Many ethnic groups have enclaves within Williamsburg, including Germans, Hasidic Jews, Italians, Puerto Ricans, and Dominicans. The neighborhood is also an attraction magnet for young people who move to the city, and an influential point of indie rock and the so-called hipster culture. Williamsburg is home to a thriving arts community, associated primarily along Bedford Avenue.
Williamsburg is seen as a place for immigrants and a community of hipster culture. But in the second decade of the 21st century, gentrification has spread through Williamsburg, making it an extension of Manhattan, with luxury homes, bars, restaurants and bars. Expensive fun that have swept the neighborhood's creative and DIY spirit. Many artists and musicians have moved to other neighborhoods or out of town, and at the end of 2014 closed three of the most emblematic concert halls due to real estate pressure and rent increases: Glassland, Kent 285 and Death by Audio.
