If you think Manhattan or Midtown represents the best that New York City has to offer, venture out to one of New York’s most exciting neighborhoods, Williamsburg. One stop away from Manhattan on the L train puts it so close to the city that you won’t even be able nap. Need to get downtown quicker? The East River Ferry departs for the 34th Street and Wall Street areas every 20 minutes during rush hour!
People change; neighborhoods evolve. Once purely industrial, Williamsburg has changed a lot in recent years. Re-zoning has produced a continuous two-mile string of waterfront esplanades with spectacular views of Manhattan, new condo construction and the conversion of architecturally magnificent landmark warehouses into residential buildings.
