We stayed in Williamsburg for a music fest last year. My god, it is Hipster Headquarters. Lots of little trendy and hip bars, pretentious looking folks - but close enough to Bushwick to not be overwhelming. I actually enjoyed Bushwick a lot so that was a plus.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, I may be a bit biased. This area in Brooklyn has always been one of the nicest in my mind. Always residential with a flair of exotic. Throughout the years there have been many changes, some welcomed, others not too much. The biggest change would be these new "sky raise" buildings that have actually taken... More

Went there on a Saturday to just stroll around. Really nice area with a couple of nice restaurants and street vendors. Great to just walk around and discover.

Type of Visit - visiting my grown daughter in Brooklyn, no teenagers- thank goodness! While visiting my daughter, Megan, in Bushwick, we had a day trip to Williamsburg. Had brunch at egg, enjoyed walking around the river and the view of the city. Went in "Artists and Fleas" flea market. The weather was perfect, low 80's, for the end of... More

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
