Williamsburg, Brooklyn: A Neighborhood Redefined

Williamsburg, Brooklyn – A Neighborhood Redefined Williamsburg was originally incorporated as the Village of Williamsburgh within the Town of Bushwick in 1827. In two years it had a fire company, a post office and a population of over 1,000. The deep drafts along the East River encouraged industrialists, many from Germany, to build shipyards around Williamsburg. Today, Williamsburg is in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, bordering Greenpoint to the north, Bedford-Stuyvesant to the south, Bushwick and Ridgewood, Queens to the east and the East River to the west. The neighborhood is being redefined by a growing population and the rapid development of housing and retail space.
