Covering the hip neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, where coffee shops, bars and funky restaurants cater to recent college grads, artists and young professionals, District 14 is losing its Polish-American immigrants and Latinos to newcomers who can afford to live in million-dollar lofts. There is still a strong Polish presence in Greenpoint; Orthodox Jews and Latinos occupy the South side of Williamsburg. In the past many new families sent their children to progressive schools in Manhattan's District 1, however in recent years District 14 schools have adopted a more progressive approach and are attracting families new to the neighborhood.
