Williamsburg is not only Brooklyn’s most popular borough, but even rivals in popularity with many of Manhattan’s top neighborhoods. Its dapper atmosphere attracts a young community of artists, musicians and hipsters looking to “escape the city” without being no more than a ten minute subway ride away.
Williamsburg has become an influential hub of indie rock and a growing community of artists. Pop-up markets and coffee shops abound in plenty, as well as consignment shops housing one-of-a-kind treasures. Trendy-chic bars line its sidewalks and a growing nightlife keep its 113,000 inhabitants happily entertained.
Williamsburg – Transportation
Because of its close proximity to Manhattan, transportation to and from Williamsburg is as simple as jumping on either the L, J, M, Z or G train. To the east, the Williamsburg bridge is a short cab ride over the East River and into the Lower East Side. Other means of transportation include several bus routes, the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the East River Ferry or simply via bike.
