Location, Location, Location
Located central to both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Williamsburg has a one-off combination of cultures. With all the crazy city experience of Manhattan with the more easy and laid-back lifestyle of Brooklyn. The best part of it is that it’s so easy to travel between the two! With an average subway commute of 15 minutes between Williamsburg and Midtown Manhattan on the L & G trains or a quick CitiBike trip over Williamsburg bridge, it’s no wonder why Williamsburg has quickly become a desirable area for Young Professionals to reside in.
You can commute anywhere across New York City from Williamsburg, but more importantly, you don’t always have to! The Brooklyn Borough has been made famous for unique events, electric nightclubs, and the up-and-coming music scene. Love Beer? Williamsburg is a community well-known for beer gardens and a love of craft beers. If beer is not your style, why not head to Brooklyn Bowl and beat your roommates at 10-pin bowling whilst jamming out to your favorite artists? If you are looking to relax whilst enjoying a show, head over to Nitehawk Cinema for a retro cinema experience. Finally, if you want to get creative, and learn a thing or two to impress your roommates with, hit up Brooklyn Kitchen where you can take part in fun and interactive cooking classes.
Another great part about Williamsburg is the number of parks and green spaces, of all sizes. From McCarren Park, which boasts a large public swimming pool, an outdoor gym, baseball, and basketball courts as well as a full running track, it truly is the perfect space to spend your summer days with friends or get to know your roommates! Alternatively, Domino Park, located along the East River to grab a drink or a bite to eat whilst admiring the breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Or, if you’re looking for a more peaceful and meditative park, McGolrick Park is the perfect green spot to escape the sometimes-hectic city lifestyle for an hour or two.
