Stayed in Williamsburg for a week! One must walk around to see the amazing graffitti on the streets. Most of them interesting and pithy. Great ambience and lovely little coffee shops and organic eateries.

There are many facets of Williamsburg. I encourage people to wander from neighborhoods to neighborhood with openness and wonder

Very cool place. Try the Smorgasburg food fair at Brooklyn Bridge Park every Saturday. Some of the BEST, most Awesome food found anywhere on this planet! If you like FOOD, The NYC melting pot has created an internationally flavored food fair you should not miss.

A lot of neat eateries if that is your thing. Williamsbury is not the Williamsburg of years gone by. Much more upscale and a much younger crowd. A pleasure to stroll through and experience.

Going to see Williamsburg was very interesting. It was very artsy and there was a lot of artsy shops. One shop we visited was called Junk. Our hosts recommended it but I wouldn't. It literally was selling a bunch of overpriced Junk. Other shops had nice homemade furniture and refurbished items. They were cool to look at.

Went there via subway to check out the night life. Ended up having dinner and watching a local band. Picked the wrong night because it was down pouring rain, but then again, it wasn't crowded.

This hipster-side off the city is wonderful! "Bedford avenue" is a lovely street with cool, cheap and original shops and restaurants.

We visited the Hasidic Jewish area to see what their culture was like. It was very interesting and educational (we interested a local) and they had good food to eat. However, some of the people weren't nice, and there wasn't too much to see otherwise. Definitely interesting to visit once.

We had a few hours to kill and spent some of them walking around the Bedford Ave. area. There were a few nice shops and we stopped at one of the restaurants to have a drink. It was very enjoyable!
