Williamsburg

Williamsburg, once a neighborhood dominated by factory buildings, is now one of the hippest destinations in Brooklyn.

Williamsburg, once a neighborhood dominated by factory buildings, is now one of the hippest destinations in Brooklyn. The main drag, Bedford Avenue, boasts a number of quirky shops, boutiques, and secondhand stores, making it a popular shopping destination during the day. Once the sun goes down, young New Yorkers fill the many bars and restaurants in the neighborhood late into the night. Williamsburg is also known for its waterfront, which is home to excellent views of the Manhattan skyline and towering, glassy condo buildings. Photo courtesy of Eden, Janine, and Jim via Flickr.
