Wandered through this developing neighbourhood, and enjoyed the ambience. A combination of local commerce with a smattering of global retail outlets, in a clearly residential zone.

I really liked Williamsburg. We walked through here quite a few times on our visit to NY. Interesting place to chill and people watch.

There are 2 sides to Williamsburg: There's the old Jewish area, where people ran around in traditional clothing, and then tehre's the modern part with cool shops and restaurants around Bedford Avenue.

This is a very safe, vibrant part of Brooklyn. No shortage of places to eat and bars. Always something fun going on. Plenty of Citi Bikes to rent! Nice parks in the neighborhood. Just an amazin place to visit!

Arrived early afternoon, jumping off at York Station just over the Williamsburg bridge and heading out on foot. Lots of interesting & beautiful murals adorning the walls and nooks around the area. The views of Manhattan at sunset and after dark were this photographers dream.
