Neighborhoods
Our neighborhood is absolutely lovely, we are so lucky! Williamsburg is amazing for the chill culture, great food and awesome small businesses/boutiques. There is something for everyone here. Our apartment is really conveniently located to transportation to get into the city as well (shared our normal tranportation options below): 1 block from Bedford Ave L Train 5 blocks/10 minute walk to North Williamsburg Ferry (direct shot down N 6th Street) 5 blocks/10 minute to McCarren Park 10 blocks/12 min walk to Marcy Ave J Uber to downtown is typically around $15

Owned by members of LCD Soundsystem, this is a local favorite. It is small and should be booked through reservations. However, you can walk-in just expect to wait for about an hour.
