In Williamsburg, you will find a contemporary art scene, a youthful care-free culture, a vibrant nightlife and incredible cultural diversity. In 2005, much of the Williamsburg waterfront district was rezoned to accommodate mixed-use high density residential buildings. The neighborhood changed from manufacturing and light industry to primarily residential use. You will find converted warehouses, new luxury condo development, as well as walk-ups and rowhouses. Popular restaurants, bars and breweries line the streets, and McCarren Park and the waterfront offer respite from the bustling street life.
