A former artists’ enclave, Williamsburg is an ultra-trendy neighborhood in Brooklyn that draws the young and the fashionable from around the world. Known for being the birthplace of NYC’s hipster movement and its close proximity to Manhattan, Williamsburg has become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Brooklyn. The old factories from its industrial past have been converted into gorgeous lofts; luxury high-rises with stunning Manhattan views line the waterfront; and boutique condos are mixed among townhouses and old tenement buildings. While the neighborhood continues to evolve with the arrival of Whole Foods, an Apple Store, WeWork, lavish hotels and more, it still maintains a hip and edgy vibe. Hot spots include: Brooklyn Bowl, Diner, Radegast, Lilia, Smorgasburg, Baby’s All Right, Four Horseman, and Brooklyn Steel.
