so I'm heading to NYC later in the year from Australia for two weeks. I've decided to stay in Williamsburg as it's very much "me" but I have a couple of choices in terms of WHERE.in Williamsburg. They both cost exactly the same, I'm just wondering which area would be "better" in your opinion?
Option 1: Kent Street. An old apartment building right on the river, with a giant window and river and bridge views, a rooftop that gets very social with the best views of manhattan I've ever seen but the apartment is a little old.
Option 2: A much more modern "newer" apartment to the east, on Humboldt Street, more central williamsburg I guess, near Montrose Ave. This apartment isn't as large, and the views aren't as good, without the social rooftop, but it's very clean, modern and new. There is still a view of brooklyn but being further away it's not as nice. I would be sharing this apartment with a local as well.
like i said, both places are exactly the same price.
Thanks for your opinion everyone!
