The immediate surrounding locales nearby this 5 story building are among our favorites, including endless restaurants, bars, shops, and the new Williamsburg Cinemas on Grand Street (just 2 minutes away Roebling, Havemeyer, Grand Street, and Metropolitan Ave make up one of Williamsburg's best locations to live in, with affordable prices (as compared to the Northside) with even better shops nearby.
