“Smorgasburg!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Check out Smorgasburg on Saturdays. They have an incredible variety of delicious food! I especially like the lobster roll, the porchetta sandwich and the popsicles.

“Creative Center of Brooklyn”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Don't be fooled by worn industrial buildings and not-so-great new construction. This neighborhood still retains the creative energy that made it a target for gentrification. There is great food, unexpected shopping and an energy that is all but gone from Manhattan.

“Still like the old days”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The rents are outrageously high. Too many buildings and people not enough transportation. Too many bars. But the streets especially the dark ones are the same as 20 years ago. You have to be aware of your environment. It's overcrowded, overpriced and pretentious.

“Williamsburg was cool in 2006.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Youre late to the party. The neighborhood has been overrun with commercialized crap, very expensive trendy restaurants suitable for some high school kids on a "nice date," and SWARMS of tourists from New Jersey. Blech...

“Changed so much, but a real neighborhood to visit”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

When "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" was written, this neighborhood was for immigrant families. Now, it is cool and cooler with shops and restaurants galore. But no two are alike and there are no mega stores or reminders that the world has copied itself everywhere. Lovely to walk in and out on a fine afternoon and see the families are still there along with the hip people and the unique places. This IS Brooklyn..
