I have never met anyone from Williamsburg where I lived till I was 18 years old. We moved to Sheepshead Bay after and I remained there till I married at age 23. Over the years I have met lots of Brooklynites from Sheepshead Bay in my travels. We cruise a lot and and if it is a East coast cruising , so many Brooklynites on board. last year I met three couples still living in Sheepshead Bay. Years ago whenever I met New Yorker and they asked where I was from, hated to say Williamsburg because I felt it meant slum. Now I say it proudly and seems like even non New Yorkers know about the wonderful Williamsburg Brooklyn and how upscale it has become.
