Williamsburg, Brooklyn: Ultratrendy Neighborhood Across the East River from Manhattan
In a game of word association, “Williamsburg” is likely to elicit a common response: “hipster.” The popular neighborhood, located opposite Manhattan’s Lower East Side, has become synonymous with young people and bohemian living. This relationship dates as far back as the 1980s, when the first artists and musicians began crossing the East River in search of cheaper rents. In recent years, Williamsburg has gentrified bigtime. And though many artists have now been priced out of the neighborhood, they’ve left behind a constellation of galleries, music venues, dive bars, and some of New York’s best restaurants.
Though the ultratrendy Williamsburg can feel like it’s a world away from Manhattan, in reality it’s quite close. Three subway lines, the Williamsburg Bridge, and even a water taxi provide easy access to the next borough over. For visual confirmation of Manhattan’s proximity, visit East River State Park, a 7-acre green space with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. Afterward, consider swinging by one of the many restaurants on Grand Street.
