Williamsburg, renewed art of living

Williamsburg, renewed art of living

Skilfully mixing old and new, industrial landscapes and community spirit with a sense of eclecticism and freshness, this part of Brooklyn has become the epicentre of the modern New York experience.

Once a popular neighbourhood sheltering families looking for extra space, as well as unlucky people longing for the American dream, the historical district of Williamsburg in Brooklyn has rapidly grown. It has now become one of the trendiest of the whole New York metropolis.
If rents are similar to Manhattan ones, the atmosphere will surely amaze visitors passing by, who will rapidly understand its drawing power: The Burg, as locals named it, offers a true compendium of art and culture, between street art frescoes, art house cinemas and indie concerts. Wander from chic thrift shops to vegetarian and environmentally responsible restaurants, then take a break to gaze at the magnificent view of the sun setting down over the Manhattan skyline, from the East River State Park. Nightlife in Williamsburg attracts a varied, young and trendy crowd, often not thinking twice about crossing the East River to revel in delicious cocktails and local food. This laid-back New York ideal should not be passed by!
