Gentrified neighborhood with nice bars and restaurants. If your thinking about moving here you'll need about 900k for many small 650 sqft. one bedrooms.

Strolling the streets of Williamsburg is a day out. People watching and eating can't be beat. Williamsburg has become the Manhattan for us all. Bedford Avenue is a must.
