The big, aggressively hip Brooklyn neighborhood you either really love or really don’t. Grubby industrial warehouses have been repurposed into loft apartments, cool boutiques, coffee houses, rooftop bars and excellent farm-to-table restaurants. The serious live music scene and vinyl record stores add another layer of urban edge. A rich population mix of Yiddish-speaking Hasidim, Poles, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Italian-Americans and more creates an irresistible diversity and energy. Recent high-rise condos along the revitalized waterfront are helping to absorb the FOMO rush across the East River.
A unique level of urban stimulation.
Very progressive- politically, environmentally, every which way.
