Williamsburg is home to an interesting mix of ethnic groups, artists and, more recently, hipsters. North of Broadway, you can find a large Puerto Rican and Dominican population. South Williamsburg still has a considerable Hasidic population. East Williamsburg is a largely African-American and Hispanic area, with a few older Italian families mixed in. Throughout the neighborhood, you will find old industrial buildings that have since been re-purposed into residential spaces, galleries and commercial/retail space. These buildings were the initial draw of the artists that fled the higher rents of Manhattan in the 1970s for the large lofts of Williamsburg. Today, hipsters flock seek out Williamsburg apartments for rent because of the neighborhood's cool art and music scene, cheap rents (relative to Manhattan) and a growing housing supply.
The neighborhood is on the other side of the Williamsburg Bridge, directly across the water from Manhattan. It is the home of old industrial spaces, most notably the old Domino Sugar Factory that stands along the banks of the East River.
The proximity to Manhattan makes Williamsburg apartments for rent especially attractive. The neighborhood is a short commute from Manhattan via the Williamsburg Bridge, the L subway line or the J,M,Z lines. One can get to work or go out in the East Village quite easily. Additionally, proximity to the G train means that the rest of Brooklyn is accessible.
