What a difference two decades make. A video uploaded to YouTube this week by photographer Roland Andrijauskas (h/t Free Williamsburg) displays videos of the Williamsburg and Greenpoint waterfront from the ancient days of 1992. Missing are the hordes of hipsters and babied couples, but bountiful are the factories and spray paint. The video even focuses in on Greenpoint's Huxley Envelope Building, which met its fate just this week.
