Hi Christian,

Williamsburg is beyond up and coming and has already arrived. It's a great neighborhood, but some sections are very pricey. Are you looking for an up and coming neighborhood in Brooklyn? If so, have a look at the Trulia profiles for these neighborhoods: Crown Heights, Red Hook, Bed-Stuy, Sunset Park, Bushwick, or Greenwood Heights.

Good luck,

Williamsburg has arrived. I just signed contract for condo in bburg [i.e. billyburg i.e. williamsburg]. I am leaving the east village, a neighborhood i loved until last 10 years. i love williamsburg. The area can be a bit pricey compared to rest of brooklyn, but it's what i wanted & could afford. Many great real estate websites. i think recent sq ft prices are around $650 in bburg, thats what i paid [notice- on new construction it seems they list sq feet for the raw space. measure wall to wall & it seems much less than advertised.. everywhere. they include closets, bathroom, counters, walls it seems]. Plenty of new construction condos, many that went bust around 2008 it seems, but may be finished in next 2 years so if you buy, don't expect value to rise any time soon- there is a backlog of units that will come to market as soon as buyers come around for them, keeping prices down i'd say. But that benefits you buying now. don't wait too long. good luck
