We ate down here a couple times and checked out a couple of the little shops. Make sure to check out Smorgasburg on the weekends!

For every young cultured/conscious /artsy millennial in new york (or any others) Williamsburg is a great hang out spot. I come here in the summer just because the trek from my neighborhood to over here is a long one, nevertheless, I always have a blast.

Decided to explore some of Brooklyn by crossing The Williamsburg bridge on foot and heading left into Williamsburg. Great district, the "new Village", lots of cool funky boutiques around Bedford Avenue and 5th - 8th Street. Cool places to eat (Shelter) and get a view of Manhattan (Wythe Hotel) definitely somewhere i would like to live.

If the weather isn't as good, the crowds will be slightly less, but not much. There are a lot of restaurants, bars, and shops here. The waterfront isn't especially... More

plenty of places to eat/drink and shopping opportunities with some independent shops. Good for families as well as couples. Green spaces with several parks which were being well used for sports/joggers and walkers at the weekend.
