Such a fun place to visit if you go to the right spots... I suggest to go to the old section or the Italian neighborhood which gives you a sense of what it used to be like, interspersed with great restaurants and Hipster decor.

The best coffee shops in the city, all types of other commerce too. Has everything you need to have the best of NYC in one place. They even have their own Whole Foods and Apple Store both nice and uncrowded. Can't miss it when visiting NYC.

Be nice, talk to strangers and pick up after yourself. For heavens sake, please use public transportation to visit. It's busiest around the "L" stop at Bedford Ave. Get out and explore around. Go down by the water, it's one of the best views of Manhattan - especially dusk /nighttime. We've got some really great restaurants. Notable and reasonable $... More

I was hoping for something avant garde and artsy. What I found was a lot of trendy restaurants, an Apple store and a Whole Foods. Not very cutting edge to my mind - not very edgy at all. Disappointing.

This neighborhood offers some of the best dining and graffiti in the city. The best fusion culinary styles with eclectic ethnic shops, along with some stunning views of Manhattan along the water. Just walk down by the water and then cut over to Bedford street and walk south to the bridge for a wonderful tour.

Continously evolving latest visit we stopped by the new Whole Foods. Passed by the busy new Apple Store & had lunch @ a trendy Japanese restaurant on Bedford Ave. We walked from Metropolitan to beyond the area. Very nice area now used to visit friends in the 90's amazing different flavor.
