It must simply suck to live in this part of town. Most people who live here are a pretentious bunch of Non-native New Yorkers who got suckered into paying high rent to live in an area where there are simply no useful businesses to speak...More

Williamsburg and surrounds is a very cool.place to spend some time. Bedford Street is littered with cool shops and food stores. Loads of vintage shops, retro goods and boutiques. A great place to spend some time.

We read a lot about this area and expected a lot of bars, restaurants, etc. and we found nothing, only many school buses, kids and a lot of waste in whole area. So we were bit confused..

Williamsburg was once a very hip neighborhood populated by artists and other creative people who lived in old lofts and makeshift apartments. The main drag, Bedford, was a combination of old-school shops and restaurants and unique shops. Developers took it over, started renovating and building...More

The whole area is being renovated. All the old warehouses are being turned into offices and apartments. Very interesting to stroll through the area and there are many restaurants all over the area as well.
