“The new "it" thing in NY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

In the 00's it was the meatpacking district but now it's Williamsburg. Spend your day in the island and then go to Williamsburg for it's absolutely great bars and restos!

“High priced and dirty.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Garbage in the streets and high prices, I cant figure out the draw. There are many good restaurants and awesome views of the Manhattan skyline, it ends after that. Perfect example of supply and demand. Landlords charge outrageous rents for crappy apartments and the streets are strewn with liter. But the 20-30 somethings continue to pay it, so why not take advantage.

“Go to the Brooklyn Winery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

A gem in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn - amazing food and incredible made-on-site wine, enjoyed in a funky atmosphere with friendly and knowledgeable wait staff....what more could you want?? Made our foray in to Brooklyn well worth the visit.
