We were in NY for 3 weeks and stayed in an AirBNB in Williamsburg. We were a 5 min walk to a train station and ferry, surrounded by shops, cafes, artists markets, food markets and a great vibe. It was easy to get into the city, but we were always happy to come back to our area after a day... More

If your are into trendsetters and hipsters then search no more. Willy b is pretty big and has different parts. Bedford Avenue area on the north side is trendiest and most populated w tourist and locals. Best part is food options w unique and yummy restaurants. L train easy access to city.

we love this place - all times of the year. Best place to stay + live in NY. Walk to anywhere to endless cafe's shops and dinning options. Plus you're so close to the bridge and the city.

In Brooklyn the metamorphosis from industrial era to a residential it's still in action. Williamsburg it's solid base of innovation with a vintage look of the past. Lots artists and street Art make this place rich of vibe and out of tourists beaten places

This is urbanizated ultra orthodox Jewish community of Brooklyn. That area mostly Jewish. Lately it's got a very renovated. It's a business and residential naboghood. A lot of synagogues, Jewish schools, kosher stores, caterings and others. People or not outgoing.

Perfect for your stay in NYC area if you appreciate vibrant neighbourhoods which never sleep. We stayed there for 2 weeks. It is full of cool shops and restaurants. You can have dinner, or grab a drink before you go to slep after you touristy day. Easy an quick to Manhattan (you have to try water taxi), other Brooklyn areas.

Williamsburg has some great restaurants and some nice hotels, but avoid Bedford at all costs. It has been taken over by rich young hipsters and the tourists that come to watch them. If you want serious eats, go to Broadway or up to North Williamsburg towards Greenpoint.
