Williamsburg has so much to offer. It's an awesome neighborhood with plenty of food options, scenic views (java st, 44th drive), nightlife, and day time biergartens, art everywhere and so lively. It's a must visit - maybe more than once.

Just moved into the surrounding neighborhood and must say that Williamsburg is starting to become really fancy. I think the borough of Brooklyn truly is its own unique place. Williamsburg is defiantly worth a visit and the J train is very reliable.
