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.

Nick was our tour guide...

Nick was our tour guide in Williamsburg and we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves! He was just great. Personable, informed and fun. We had to leave a bit early because I wasn't feeling well and we were sorry to leave him early. He was the best.

Ruined by a group of rude women!

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
Our guide, Paul, was top class and showed the patience and diplomacy of a saint!! The tour group he was expecting was four people, but ended up with six adults and a small baby! Unfortunately these people took almost no active part in the tour, (other than to eat the food!), lagged behind and carried out their conversations in a language that was not English. They were, in my opinion, ill-mannered. Had it not been for these people the tour would have been first class. Paul deserves a medal!

Our tour guide, Paul was so knowledgeable about the history of the areas we visited it made a FOOD tour much more interesting. We went to so many different cultural areas of Williamsburg and the variety of food was wonderful. The small group was very relaxed and fun.

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
The guides were excellent. They knew not only the area we were exploring but also had tips for navigating the city as a whole. We had so many samples I thought I was going to burst. You can tell the guides knew the food and introduced us to history of the area at the same time. Fabulous time!!!

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.
