Head to the North
Nov. 2021
It's a big neighborhood and known for its hipsters and hip establishments. I chose to do my wandering in a decidedly unhip area, the southern edge which is a Hassidic neighborhood, exclusively. Margaret Mead would love to do some anthropological research here, but for the tourist it's drab. Head north for the fun.

A Different View of the City
Oct. 2021
Just a quick subway ride from Manhattan on the L train to Bushwick and then after walking around there seeing street art and having a beer & a taco hop back on the L train to Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. It was quiet on a Friday afternoon to just wander the street. Grabbed a NY slice at Joe's Pizza, had a beer, took in more street art. The Mona Lisa of Williamsburg is the most well known mural, 4 stories high. The photograph was submitted into a contest by a 17 year old in 2014. Domino Park is a real delight to walk, same architects who designed the High Line and Little Island. Just wonderful views of the Manhattan skyline. I had walked the Brooklyn Bridge before and DUMBO so this time walked back to Manhattan on the Williamsburg Bridge. It's noisier but not crowded. I've been to NYC many times so really enjoyed doing something I hadn't done before. I have heard though that it is quite busy on the weekends here.

Great place to wonder
Apr. 2021 • Couples
It is fun to pop in and out of shops, restaurants and bars. The people watching is great. Skip the plan and walk the day away. Due to COVID most restaurants have a nice outside area setup.

This town is the best for ease of walking to numerous shops, restaurants, waterfront and everything NY has to offer, but on a smaller scale, Check out the Vintage stores, amazing!!

Cool neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shops
Dec. 2019
Cool neighborhood, an extension of the east village if I may say but with a different feel. Really great restaurants for lunch and brunch, love the vibe you just feel the creative energy everywhere and there are authentic Mexican food trucks almost at every corner in these streets and a huge food scene option in general. Loved it! It's the center for Brooklyn's Airbnbs, a lot of french people have made it their headquarters so you'll hear a lot of french speaking while walking around. Plenty of nice spots to take photographs and the best brands have shops in the area. The easiest way to go there is to take the train and the nicest way is to take the East river ferry, it's cheaper than any taxis, Uber and faster with a view on the NY skyline.

Rude staff. Overpriced. No masks.
Aug. 2020 • Couples
This place is super disappointing. It’s a great day in theory to hang at a pool in Brooklyn in the summer but at the end of the day the staff is rude, the pool area is super crowded (even during COVID) and all of the drinks are overpriced and watered down. Skip this spot.

Poor accessibility to area
Mar. 2019
Not really a fan of Williamsburg despite a lot of good bars and restaurants in the area because the G train is always delayed and it's expensive to Uber out of this neighborhood.
