Williamsburg Southside

Williamsburg

Williamsburg is roughly bounded by Flushing Avenue to North 14th Street, Metropolitan and Bushwick Avenues to Kent Avenue and the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The Dutch West India Company purchased the land where Williamsburg stands from local Native Indians in 1638 - and by the early 19th century, this independent community was annexed to Brooklyn. Wealthy New Yorkers like Cornelius Vanderbilt began building mansions here and the local economic growth took hold and thrived. For instance, Astral Oil (later morphing into Standard Oil), Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Brooklyn Flint Glass, and Esquire Shoe Polish were all part of the economic boom.

Now filled with eclectic nightlife, in-vogue restaurants (two of which are Michelin stars rated), funky shops where you can get anything from a surfboard to vintage vinyl and sparkling new developments, Williamsburg is one of the largest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, both in population and geography.

The East River waterfront was revitalized, including a $50 million dollar renovation of McCarren Park's famous swimming pool large enough to refresh 1,500 waders and swimmers. The 35-acre park is also home to dozens of ball fields, tennis courts, a 7,200-square-foot ice-skating rink, running tracks, picnic areas, playgrounds and a fitness facility.

Fun Fact: Mel Brooks grew up on S. 3rd street.

Housing Stock: New developments more country club than high-rise with many desired amenities, tenement-style, walk-ups and apartment houses.
