Sure we all heard of hipsters everywhere in Brooklyn, particularly in Williamsburg. But it does offer a diverse environment with mutli-cultural foods and shopping. So come and see what the neighborhood is about. And yes you may see some hipsters!

Go to Bedford street. It has tons of restaurants and little shops. If you're looking for something to do, take a stroll down Bedford street.

I've lived here most of my life. Hands down best neighborhood in NYC. It's residential yet lively. You can walk everywhere, to bars, coffee shops, restaurants, they are on every block. Some new fab hotels are here and a 5 min train ride to Manhattan. Smorgasburg on Sats (not in the winter), ferries on the East River to Dumbo, Greenpoint... More

This part of town is very funky and filled with hipster casual people. I loved it. Nice bars and yummy food! Felt safe there the whole time. I will definitely go back. If you have ever been to Newtown in Sydney Aus it is kind of like that.

I love Williamsburg and its flea markets, its street art, its good bars, restaurants and shops... and of course the beautiful waterfront with a nice view on the skyline!

Smorgasburg and flea on spring and summer saturdays. North williamsburg is a place to be. Spend a day by taking a subway from manhattan to marcy avenue. From marcy you can take a bus or walk. Many cool places in Williamsburg, - 321 ice cream, samurai mama sushi, catbird jewelry, brooklyn brewery etc.

This area really is two separate places. The first is a long time orthodox Jewish enclave and the newer revived area is the hip spot for young 25-35 year olds Who spend a lot, party a lot and like to be near. The action. There are so many new places opened within the last five years that it is hard... More
