Easy to get here, this area of Brooklyn is lovely. Great to walk around, fantastic for dinner - cute and quirky places abound. I love Milk by Momofuku and St Anslem.
Metropolitan Ave (we were near Havemeyer & Metropolitan) is a lot of fun. The Commodore is a good place for cheap drinks and friendly young folk. The nearby specialty beer places are quite impressive in their selections.
I loved it. Very nice area, full of character, great restaurants, a must for those visiting Brooklyn. Nice to get away from the city for a few hours and see something different.
Fun area to walk around and SO much less crowded than Manhattan. The restaurants and shops are eclectic and friendly. Taking the water ferry over from Manhattan was fun.
We absolutely loved Williamsburg, we went there on the last day of our trip and we wished we'd gone sooner. Great bars, vintage shops, the park overlooking the manhattan skyline is fantastic. Just a lovely place to chill out. Barcade is also loads of fun!

On Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 12 p.m. I went on a tour with my girlfriend that began across the street from Station Restaurant. The tour guide was Jeffrey Stirewalt and he was very helpful in showing my girlfriend, myself, and two ladies the historical spots around Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Great neighbourhood to explore and enjoy. Lots of great coffee shops - try Konditori say hi to Yogi- barista extraordinaire - restaurants shopping check out the Mast chocolate factory and the relatively new and snazzy Whyte Hotel
Williamsburg is charming and trendy, and only 3 subway stops form Union Sqaure.Prices are pretty much the same as in fashionable Manhattan areas. Worth seeing,but definetively better for young people.
My husband and I are in our early 60's but very interested in what is happening with young folks nowadays. When we got off the subway in Williamsburg, we definitely felt in the minority. Didn't see an old person anywhere in sight. This neighborhood is definitely for the young hip set. We enjoyed ourselves but didn't feel quite at home.
