I spent my 20's and 30's in Park Slope and enjoyed the vitality and camaraderie of a young peoples community. Now in my late 60's I decided to take a day by myself in Williamsburg. I walked throughout the neughborhood until I wandered into Greenpoint. Williamsburg is thriving with millennias and tourists. People are polite, involved, and generally enjoying life.... More

It's like the new soho. Lots of shopping and good eats. Walk down the Main Street of Bedford Ave, but don't forget about Wythe Ave. There are great coffee shops starting from Metropolitan and Wythe. Shop from books to shoes to clothes to jewelry. Lots of street vendors too. Quick ride on L train puts you right there.

Williamsburg is now an inescapable part of any non-superficial exploration of NYC longer than a few days. Fantastic cafes, shops, restaurants, atmosphere. A great blend of the old and the new. A simple stroll along Bedford, down 6th to Kent Ave and back along Grand will give you plenty to see. Equip yourself with an NFT guide to Brooklyn -... More

So many boroughs to visit, took a few trips here but finally made it to the neighborhood. Adorable! Did Bedford Ave. Checked out the local flavor and small, unique shops.

Years since I had been before and it is obviously changing, more interesting than mid Manhattan and the tourist aspects of Times Square, lots of interesting restaurants and cafes and classy hotels.

Spent a day on our own touring Brooklyn. Started with a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge and then a nice walk into DUMBO for coffee at Brooklyn Roasters. UBER to Williamsburg where we strolled down the Grand. Great lunch at the French restaurant Juliette and then more strolling in W'burg. Wonderful place to spend the day.

Williamsburg. Absolutely wonderful area. Although I think it's now considered 'a bit hipster' it's a really chilled out place. A great district for walking around and soaking up New York vibes without the throngs of tourists in Manhattan. We visited a few bars and coffee shops, stopped into some cute vintage shops! I could live there, well, if I could... More
