Williamsburg

Brooklyn, New York

The Basics

The heart of Williamsburg is Bedford Avenue, which is home to dozens of restaurants and boutiques. On weekends, you'll find artisans selling handicrafts and book vendors unloading paperbacks. Clothes shopping is a good bet in this fashion-forward neighborhood, and vintage and second-hand clothing stores offer everything from old-time denim to cowboy boots.

Williamsburg is also a historically diverse neighborhood. The Hasidic Jewish community lives on the south side, and visitors can book walking tours to learn about Hasidic history and religious practices. The fast-changing neighborhood is also home to waterfront condos, renovated warehouses, and trendy restaurants. Try a walking tour or bike tour to get the lay of the land. Local guides cover the essentials in only a couple hours, leaving visitors well prepared for self-guided adventuring.

So interesting to see and learn about the Hasidic and hipster neighborhoods right next to each other. Nice mix of walking and stops to eat. Enjoyed the small samples which allowed us to try more than one flavor. Chicken biscuits at Pies & Thighs was my favorite. Paul was a fantastic guide and made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Fantastic way to see Williamsburg!

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
We enjoyed so much being tourists for a few hours in our own city! We learned a lot about the history of the place and got some great bites along the way. Portion sizes were perfect to make us full while getting to explore different cousins. Our guide was super-nice, was cooperative with our photos obsession and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

When to Get There

Weekends are bustling on Bedford Avenue. For brunch and boutique shopping, plan to arrive around 10am, since many of the shops open midmorning. For a night out, arrive in the early evening for dinner, but plan to stay late. Since locals love to party, bars and venues stay open well into the night—last call for drinks is 4am; many places don't get going until midnight.

Domino Park

Located off Kent Avenue, in the shadow of the old Domino Sugar Refinery, Williamsburg’s waterfront Domino Park offers unobstructed views and an East River breeze. Visit on a summer weekend and you might catch an outdoor concert or movie screening. At night, all year round, the park is the perfect place to watch Manhattan's skyline sparkle.
