Once attracting a diverse group of immigrants from the Lower East Side, Williamsburg has now become a center for art, hipster culture, and Indie music. Since a change in zoning laws in 2005, it has seen an influx of new development, bringing with it trendy boutiques, cheese and wine specialty shops, chic new restaurants, and a drastic change in scenery. While Williamsburg was once an industrial center, many of the old factory buildings have been converted into cultural or residential buildings. The waterfront has seen an incredible transformation with the incorporation of parks and other greenery. Williamsburg’s waterfront is now a center for cultural and arts events. Just one stop from Manhattan on the L line, it has become one of the most desired neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
