Well-known as the hipster-hub of Brooklyn, Williamsburg is full of creative types and indie venues. It’s safest and most vibrant areas lie near the L train stops, with the main street of the neighborhood being Bedford Avenue and having shops, bars, restaurants, galleries, performance spaces and museums extending out from there. It’s the type of neighborhood where you’ll forever be stumbling across unusual, eclectic and ironically hip spaces. For example, The Brooklyn Flea Market sells vintage clothes, antiques and a variety of artwork, while Buffalo Exchange allows you to buy and trade your clothing for trendy outfits and vintage duds. If you like music and performance, the Knitting Factory puts on concerts and comedy shows and offers old-school video games, cheap beer and quirky art. Artsy folk enjoy one of Williamsburg’s newest additions, Nitehawk Cinema, which shows independent films and serves fluffy homemade popcorn. If you want to gallery hop, you’ll find free creative spaces littered all over the neighborhood, especially on Grand Avenue. And for something completely quirky, visit the City Reliquary which showcases unusual New York City artifacts like horse bones, rotting birthday cakes, antique subway maps and L train paint chips.

The most scenic way to get to Williamsburg is to stroll over the Williamsburg Bridge, which connects the neighborhood to Manhattan’s Lower East Side. If you’d rather take the subway, you can take the G to Flushing Avenue, Broadway or Metropolitan-Lorimer; J,M,Z to Marcy Avenue; J,M to Hewes Street, Lorimer Street or Flushing Avenue; L to Lorimer Street, Graham Avenue, Grand Street, Montrose Avenue or Morgan Avenue.
