East New York - The easternmost neighborhood in Brooklyn has an urban feel that belies its waterfront locale. It has yet to see the much talked about gentrification that's transforming other parts of the borough. Once imagined as a competitor to Manhattan, it's now a residential neighborhood on the rise. John Pitkin dreamed of transforming farmland into a bustling port city when he purchased and founded East New York in 1825. His plans were complicated by an economic downturn, and he was forced to sell much of the land. Over time, manufacturing jobs did draw workers, but their fortunes fell when industry began to leave the city. Since the 1980s, the area has been on the rise thanks to both legislative changes and the commitment of its dedicated residents.
