One of the largest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Williamsburg has undergone a major metamorphosis in the last decade.

It’s transforming from a traditionally working-class neighborhood to a veritable embodiment of gentrification and urban rebirth. These days, tourists and day-trippers flock to Williamsburg for a little slice of cosmopolitan bohemia.

Descriptions of 240a South 3rd Street

Nestled in the vibrant Williamsburg area between the Brooklyn Waterfront, the Williamsburg Bridge, and Metropolitan Avenue, this niche neighborhood is uniquely accessible on foot, bike, car, and public transportation. On an easy stroll through the neighborhood, you will find a grand mix of small business and new pop-up boutique storefronts on every street. Less than a 5 minute walk to the Marcy J/M subway and less than 10 minutes to the Bedford or the Lorimer L train. Sandy's favorites include Caracas Arepas Restaurant (Venezuelan cuisine) and PIPS Ping Pong and Art Space. The hallways have been renovated with tons of exposed brick and wooden beams. 1166/security deposit. Sandy Yuen (May 2013)
