Website Very Small Array put together this funny map of apartments described in Craigslist ads as being located in Williamsburg or East Williamsburg. The result, heh, confirms that if real estate brokers had their way, the boundaries of gentrified Hipsterstan would stretch all the way from the fertile blocks of Bushwick to the sleepy lanes of God's Country (northwest Greenpoint). Watch your back, Queens, only toxic Newtown Creek and that narrow pedestrian/bike path on the Pulaski Bridge can save you from Williamsburg now!
