Best FOOD in NYC DUMBO, Fort Greene, WIlliamsburg are all great neighborhoods in Brooklyn to visit. NYC is much more than just Manhattan.
I met friends at Peter Lugers for lunch. I was quite early finding a parking spot easily so I walked around. Many good places to eat. The area is being gentrified as all of Brooklyn is.
Bedford Street is the main drag in town. The L train lets you off, and coming up from the ground to see the people and activities going on is charged with energy. The word HIPSTER comes to mind.
