Starting at 11, food stands abound, not far from where the water taxi docks in Williamsburg. Every type of food is there. Try the warm pretzels stuffed with ricotta cheese and the pork belly taco. They are great.

On first view Williamsburg looks and feels like a hangout for hipsters with some rough edges and oh so cool shops. Having spent several days in this district, it beckoned to look more closely at the strong sense of neighbourhood and welcoming appeal. The rough edges began to fade and a walk along Bedfort of Driggs after dark was not... More

Flannel shirt- check Big beard- check Thirty something white guy- from the Midwest-check Late sixties Triumph outside- check All kidding aside, Williamsburg is vibrant, fun, and lively. There are shops here that exist nowhere else. I've spent many the happy hour in many different places in Williamsburg.

We had tickets for the Bulls - Nets game and stayed at the Wyeth. We decided to take a walk around the area. Many interesting and historic things to see like the Brooklyn Brewery and the Brooklyn Bowl. Both are operating and open to the public. The Bedford Avenue section is a shopper and diners delight. There are so many... More

We were lucky to visit Williamsburg on the first warm day in spring. Plenty of great neighborhood eateries and shops. Look for Mast Chocolates, great dark chocolate and hot and cold drinks. Momofuko's is also worth finding. There's a little river walk park and another park with playgrounds and stuff. A lot of newer apartments and shops, Pretty nice place... More

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. From the bruches to the world famous smorgasburg, I enjoy the diversity and uniqueness of... More
