More about Williamsburg

Complementing the extensive diversity of the residents, the diversity of the local businesses is remarkable. Outstanding Ecuadorian, Mexican, and Middle Eastern restaurants, to name a few, blanket the neighborhood and are as interesting as they are exquisite. If the visual art scene is your thing, the galleries in East Williamsburg feature fresh and exciting exhibits by up-and-coming artists. Additionally, a number of inspired murals and street art line the neighborhood, giving East Williamsburg a voice all its own.

Commuting to Manhattan is a breeze with the option of the subway, ferry, or simply crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. The main subway line that runs through East Williamsburg is the L train. However, the G, M, J, and Z lines also serve the neighborhood at particular stops.
