About East Williamsburg Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Located between Bushwick and Williamsburg in the northwestern portion of Brooklyn, East Williamsburg is quickly becoming a haven for hipsters, artists and young professionals. Though it was once the residence of working-class citizens, gentrification has replaced the vibe. Vacant factories and warehouses are being converted into loft and apartment buildings. Among the popular eateries, cozy Vietnamese joints (like Bunker Vietnamese). and vegan spots (like Pine Box Rock Shop) are truly one of a kind. Unlike most of NYC, the foot traffic in this neighborhood is little to none, making it feel almost post-apocalyptic. The most exciting part are the little gems and surprises you stumble upon thanks to the lack of apparent entrances or signage for most establishments.
