NYC & Company is casting the spotlight on the popular Brooklyn neighbourhood of Williamsburg in this month’s Neighborhood x Neighborhood feature, introducing visitors to the best places to stay, eat, shop and explore.
The Williamsburg guide is enhanced with a short video including local tips on the places that make the neighbourhood distinct and enjoyable for tourists to explore.
Easily accessible from other parts of New York City via the L and G trains, Williamsburg has evolved into one of New York City’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, known for its world-class restaurants, one-of-a-kind clothing and jewellery stores, vibrant music venues, diverse ethnic groups, trendsetting residents and more.
Alongside the recommended highlights is a short Neighborhood x Neighborhood documentary video featuring a locals’ guide to Williamsburg. See below:
“Few neighbourhoods encompass the Brooklyn experience more than Williamsburg.
“This was the site of the classic novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and today we can see all the other great things that have taken root and blossomed in this must-see community.
“It has become a world-famous destination for its trend-setting style, five-star dining and cutting-edge music scene, all while showcasing a fusion of cultures and customs that make its residents truly unforgettable,” said Brooklyn Borough president Eric Adams.
“I encourage everyone to take a bike, cab, bus, train, ferry or their own two feet down to Williamsburg, whether they be a first-time city visitor or a long-time New Yorker looking for a new adventure!”
