January 21, 2011: Williamsburg, Toddlertown

Summary: Williamsburg: not just for hipsters anymore. Now serving hipster parents with toddlers. In condos.

Representative Quote: "In August they moved into a $980,000 three-bedroom at 80 Metropolitan. Through his living-room window, Mr. Signer can see the Domino Sugar factory and the Williamsburg Bridge, partly obscured by the steel beams of new construction — just the industrial feel he wanted."

Takeaway:
A buzzed-about, up-and-coming neighborhood has gotten more expensive and attracted an older demographic. Tell me more!
