Manhattan in Brooklyn

Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is a city unto itself. Bordered by the East River to the west, this global epicenter of cool is just a short subway, bus, or ferry ride away from Manhattan. During the 20th century, this industrial area evolved from tenements to coffee shops to world-class architectural structures, with Kent Avenue now including killer waterfront parks, new high-rise developments, and trendy restaurants. Wythe Avenue serves as the entertainment corridor, bringing a mix of hospitality, food and beverage, and cultural vibes to its residents. 

Williamsburg is a mix of old-world charm and new-world culture, aided by a thriving food scene, with innovative urban greenspaces like Domino Park, an exciting example of successful redevelopment. Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg is the highest-priced retail corridor in Brooklyn, with tons of foot traffic, while North Sixth Street serves as the fashion corridor. An influx of new tenants can be found along the street, including Patagonia, Parachute, Brooklinen, Nike, Warby Parker, and Everlane. The past 20 years have seen an explosion in prime daytime retail that shows no signs of slowing down.
