From great restaurants to local music to little boutiques Williamsburg is that place that will take all your money and you wouldn't even care. The atmosphere is rich and the streets are always fun!!

At first we planned to see only the neighborhood of The Brooklyn bridge but we ask some people on our way there and they said"if I were you I would rather go to see Williamsburg, trust me it's worth it". So we did. We went there without any preparation( it was Sunday) so we got onto some difficulties like a... More

Great area to Mooch around and then sit in a café people watching! Check out Rough Trade and have a game of table tennis while the vinyl plays

Stayed at an AirBnB in this neighborhood. Certainly has the feel of being in the city, without the chaos of Manhattan. Yet, still reasonably to Manhattan and all that it has to offer. With the L train and the East River Ferry, we were able to easily get in and out of Manhattan. Still, for dining and shopping, there really... More

Walked through Williamsburg - down to waterfront with gardens with flowers and vegetables for local restaurants. Very enjoyable.

Actually, it is not hidden at all, but Manhattan only discovered it 7 years ago. Super cosy vibe, lots of traditional shops, what Greenwich village was in the80s. Easy to get to, just walk around, get some great lunch or dinner somewhere and enjoy.

However, there's good reason that people flock here, as there are a huge array of great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, boutique clothing stores, antique stores, and pretty much anything else hip that you can imagine. Check out Smorgasborg on Sundays, as... More
