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!

Chose to stay in Williamsburg rather than Manhattan on this trip. There’s an excellent vibe with wonderful bars and restaurants and unique shops to explore.

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.

I just had the wrong impression of this place so maybe that is my fault but I thought I had done my research. I expected gatherings of interesting shops restaurants etc but they are all a little far apart and there is nothing very inspiring...More

We love to walk so I didn't need to take a tour. :) Since the late 1990s, Williamsburg has undergone gentrification characterized by hipster culture, a contemporary art scene, and vibrant nightlife. During the early 2000s, the neighborhood became a center for indie rock and...More
