I loved this neighborhood so much on a past visit to Brooklyn I decided to move here. It's one of the fastest growing, hip neighborhoods in Brooklyn with fantastic restaurants, nightclubs, cafes, street art, and amazing views of Manhattan from across the river.

Honestly we passed through the neighbourhood to see how is the lifestyle of Jewish living in New York. It's shocking to see all the advertisements in Hebrew and its people with such odd clothes and hairstyiling. It deserves a walk!

This is a nice area to stroll and do some shopping or just window shopping. Some stores are small and crowded on Sunday afternoon. Quite a few vintage stores, lots of interesting things.

We loved visiting Williamsburg from Manhattan - much quieter and calmer and more interesting streets. Everyone we met in shops, bars and restaurants were really nice too - far friendlier and more approachable than in Manhattan.

Came to help our daughter move to new apartment in Williamsburg. Love exploring this area. Wonderful variety of shops and restaurants that welcome everyone! Delighted that our daughter has a place in middle of it all! Look forward to future visits in better weather. I do not recommend visiting in December unless you love the cold and snow,etc.

I spent my 20's and 30's in Park Slope and enjoyed the vitality and camaraderie of a young peoples community. Now in my late 60's I decided to take a day by myself in Williamsburg. I walked throughout the neughborhood until I wandered into Greenpoint. Williamsburg is thriving with millennias and tourists. People are polite, involved, and generally enjoying life.... More

It's like the new soho. Lots of shopping and good eats. Walk down the Main Street of Bedford Ave, but don't forget about Wythe Ave. There are great coffee shops starting from Metropolitan and Wythe. Shop from books to shoes to clothes to jewelry. Lots of street vendors too. Quick ride on L train puts you right there.
