Part of Brooklyn Community Board 1, the neighborhood is served in the south by the NYPD's 90th Precinct[3] and in the north by the 94th Precinct.[4] In the City Council, the western and southern part of the neighborhood is represented by the 33rd District; and its eastern part, by the 34th District.[5][6]As of the 2010 United States Census, the neighborhood had a population of 32,926, an increase of 2.0% from the 32,269 enumerated in 2000.[7]

Williamsburg was, during the early 2000s, an influential hub of contemporary music like indie rock, a center of electroclash, and had a large local hipster culture, a strong art community and vibrant nightlife. Thus, it also earned the nickname "Little Berlin".[8][9] The area experiences a steady gentrification. Many ethnic groups have based enclaves within the neighborhood, including ItaliansJewsHispanicsPolesPuerto Ricans and Dominicans.
