Spent a day just wandering the narrow streets experiencing the culture, street art and boutique cafes and bars of Williamsburg. Perfect for post uni graduates who are uber chic.

Full of good places to eat, though it's kind of far from the popular part of the city, it's growing, and it's a really vibrant place

Full of vintage clothes shops (absolute Heaven!), coffee shops, plenty of up and coming restaurants - this place was a hipsters delight. It is expensive though! I have to say I really enjoyed it and could have spent all day shopping there. Recommended if you enjoy all things vintage or hipster!
