Williamsburg

Brooklyn, New York

The Basics

The heart of Williamsburg is Bedford Avenue, which is home to dozens of restaurants and boutiques. On weekends, you'll find artisans selling handicrafts and book vendors unloading paperbacks. Clothes shopping is a good bet in this fashion-forward neighborhood, and vintage and second-hand clothing stores offer everything from old-time denim to cowboy boots.

Williamsburg is also a historically diverse neighborhood. The Hasidic Jewish community lives on the south side, and visitors can book walking tours to learn about Hasidic history and religious practices. The fast-changing neighborhood is also home to waterfront condos, renovated warehouses, and trendy restaurants. Try a walking tour or bike tour to get the lay of the land. Local guides cover the essentials in only a couple hours, leaving visitors well prepared for self-guided adventuring.

Derrick is a knowledgeable and great tour guide. I loved seeing the new Williamsburg that is so different from the area I knew growing up in the nineties in Brooklyn. Highly recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see the new Brooklyn!

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
This tour and our tour guide Adam were incredible! We are a family of 5 and our 3 children are 10, 9 and 4. We ALL loved this one! The tour was informative, full of information and delicious food! And LOTS of it! We thought we’d be getting small tastings and would have lunch after. Not only did we skip lunch after, but we also skipped dinner because we were still so full! And each stop was more delicious than the last! Holy smokes! We all highly recommend this tour. You’ll get to see Brooklyn, take some memorable photos and eat the tastiest food you can imagine! Thank you Adam!!!

This is a good overview of Williamsburg and the changes it's undergone in the past few years. I would say it's a light tour not a great deal of depth but certainly worth doing if, like me, you have little to no knowledge of the area. For 25 it's worth it.

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
We enjoyed so much being tourists for a few hours in our own city! We learned a lot about the history of the place and got some great bites along the way. Portion sizes were perfect to make us full while getting to explore different cousins. Our guide was super-nice, was cooperative with our photos obsession and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
We absolutely loved this tour and would recommend it to anyone. Definitely a highlight of our trip! We didn't expect to like it this much. Will was fantastic. He not only took us to the most incredible and authentic places to eat, he told us a bit of history about the area and stories of him growing up in Williamsburg which was so interesting. He was so professional but also hilarious and very kind and we felt very safe with him. We went to about 7 places for food and can honestly say that it was the best food of our two week trip in New York. He took us along the water and also took awesome photos of us. We will definitely do this again the next time we come to the states and hopefully we get Will again!

Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tasting and Walking Tour
Adam was a great guide and happy to show is his local favourite food and cultural haunts. The food we tasted was generous in serves and than plentiful. The food was delicious and we ate from places not known to any tourists. Adam managed a small but diverse group of all ages well and we all got to know each other well due to Adams great facilitation. The tour far exceeds expectations and it was as my h about the locale as it was about the food. Adam kindly escorted everyone back onto the subway safely. Brooklyn is a must see in its own right and Adam makes the place accessible and to be returned to. Thanks Adam !!

When to Get There

Weekends are bustling on Bedford Avenue. For brunch and boutique shopping, plan to arrive around 10am, since many of the shops open midmorning. For a night out, arrive in the early evening for dinner, but plan to stay late. Since locals love to party, bars and venues stay open well into the night—last call for drinks is 4am; many places don't get going until midnight.

Domino Park

Located off Kent Avenue, in the shadow of the old Domino Sugar Refinery, Williamsburg’s waterfront Domino Park offers unobstructed views and an East River breeze. Visit on a summer weekend and you might catch an outdoor concert or movie screening. At night, all year round, the park is the perfect place to watch Manhattan's skyline sparkle.
