I often visit my daughter and son-in-law who have lived in Williamsburg for 4 years. I feel very safe walking my dog around the neighborhood alone late at night. During the day we enjoy walks to McCarren Park, with its views of One World Trade and the Empire State Building in the distance, and walking to and from various places... More

Easy enough to access all the grandeur that is Manhattan, via the subway lines or/and water taxi/ferry. Williamsburg has an abundance of funky cafes, bars and restaurants. A... More

Spent a good two hours wandering. Really interesting range of shops and places to eat. We're caught out as most shops don't open until 12:00 but still enjoyed the visit. Nice atmosphere - nice change from manic Manhattan.

Felt a lot more real than central Manhatten and was good to get a bit more perspective and real life view on New York as a whole. Lots going on, great bar and restaurant scene. Very hipster!

We checked out the area because we heard a lot about it becoming a fast growing fun area. We walked around on a very cold very windy day so didn't get to enjoy the area as much as we would otherwise. A lot of the places were closed except for bakeries. We walked along belcher street and Kent street around... More

Williamsburg as the rest of Brooklyn is going through a rejuvenation. Usually when I go there I walk around for a while check out all the new restaurants and shops but usually wind up at Peter Lugers. However there are many choices is places to eat.

Spent a day just wandering the narrow streets experiencing the culture, street art and boutique cafes and bars of Williamsburg. Perfect for post uni graduates who are uber chic.
