Williamsburg Rise

Williamsburg Rise will be a platform for dialogue centering on the upcoming socio-economic changes converging on the neighborhood. With the sudden descent of multi-unit housing, Williamsburg’s physical appearance is not the only characteristic that will be impacted. New residents will move in, while a few of the current residents may have to move out. Walk host Sheilla Sumayang welcomes you to her neighborhood and encourages you to meet her neighbors.
