Its once abandoned waterfront is now filled with newly constructed condo towers and magnificent parks and stunning views of Manhattan. Known today as the hipster capital of the United States, Williamsburg is so much more than that, containing enclaves of Puerto Ricans, Polish, Italians, Dominicans and Hasidic Jews. In a city with an unmatched ethnic diversity, Williamsburg is a standout.
