We usually go to Williamsburg where we park our car and then walk over to the Williamsburg Bridge and walk over to Manhattan.I am always in awe when I am in Williamsburg. There are always new buildings and restaurants sprouting up. Also plenty of shops. The promenade is very beautiful with a great view of Manhattan. The ferry stops there.If... More

We really enjoyed staying in Williamsburg (at The Wythe Hotel and then in an airbnb). It's a trendy neighborhood which is great to wander and explore.Lots of great bars, restaurants and quirky shops. It's also a lot more chilled out than Manhattan. Nice place to come 'home' to after a day battling the masses and sightseeing. It's also much cheaper... More

We got off the subway maybe a bit too far out. We were trying to follow a walk in a book that we had been using as our tour guide. However, a few blocks in and it turned into an excellent choice. There a just a ton of cool places to check out in this neighborhood. It's very vibrant and... More

Ground zero for hipsters -- beards, man buns, etc. Lots of interesting shops, street art, food options. A little hard to find he art galleries (not a lot of signage). Take the East River Ferry from Wall St. For the best views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge.

Convenient for the subways. Surprised at only 3 food shops and they were expensive. People friendly and relaxed safe atmosphere.

It was a fun place to go cruising around in, but I would rue having to live here. So many upper class white people in tattered clothing that I lost count of them after a while. Interesting shops are slowly being replaced with Apple stores and Whole Foods outlets. Get here while there are still a few good bars and... More

Can't wait to go back and enjoy the food, Bedford Avenue, the people. Days of walking around and I could have continued.

Great party of New York / Brooklyn to visit. Lots of great diverse food options, good bars from dives with entertainment to upmarket, a great local community feel for wandering around. Has much more within a close distance than better known places like the East Village. Great place to stay as well with great subway access to Manhattan.

The ideal place to take a walk in the weekend, full of bars and restaurants. Bedford st is magical. You may find local artists selling their products on the streets. Their park is sooooo nice! People gather there, play sports, go for a picnic,etc. I totally recommend you guys visiting this amazing place in Brooklyn. Art everywhere and excellent views... More
