Had a wonderful time shopping, people watching, and dining in Williamburg. The smorgasburg was the reason that we traveled to this part of Brooklyn (we stayed at the Akwaaba Mansion in Bed-Stey) and I'm so glad that we did! Will definitely go back to this part of the borough again!

great place, I was here for the Brooklyn flea on a Sunday which was fab. Plus loads of quirky little shops and cool places to hang out for drinks or food. Down by the river there are sublime views of Manhattan. This is where the cool beautiful people hang out but it feels friendly and relaxed. Don't miss it.

If you visit Williamsburg in the summer months check out the Brooklyn Flea on Saturdays. Smorgasburg , a part of the flea has amazing delicacies ranging from authentic south American tacos, nachos to the Indian specialties of samosa and dosa. The wierd comibnation of cactus - lemonade available at one of the shacks stole my heart.

Very trendy - murals and great architecture in Brooklyn NY. Love love love all the historic and older buildings, homes and bridges and waterfront parks to enjoy the views.

Loved this location. Walked through the main high street and bought bagel lunch which we then ate in the park whilst watching the baseball practise. Williamsburg Brewery open day was an amazing experience with a great guide.

Great place to wander for hours. Sightseeing, wonderful little restaurants, bodegas, and boutiques for shopping. Best thing to do? Stay at the Wythe, walk out, and get lost. That's the way to find cool stuff--when you're not looking for it. And Greenpoint Cemetery is worth the trip.

Been walking thru under this bridge for only one time when I lived in NYC, but has given me a kind of different feeling looking up onto those rusty iron piles among those bridge, I even can remember the smell of that path. Underneath there were old shops that bring you back to the 70's hippie time. Would love to... More

Williamsburg has become "the Soho/Village" of Brooklyn. Excellent neighborhood to walk, visit galleries, trendy stores and plenty of restaurants of all types of cuisine.

Your youth gravitate to this neighborhood. It is one of these ethnic neighborhoods, but has grown to include Hipsters. Good for shopping, especially female ware.

Just spent a boring two hours walking the streets of Williamsburg . Is there anything to see ? Well no actually . Lots of ironic bushy beards , and cafes and bars . There are very few shops to see . Have been to London and Paris and this place isn't worth the hype . Probably a nice place to... More
