Williamsburg Brooklyn is the epicenter of Brooklyn as a fashionable worldwide brand. The Williamsburg neighborhood may have rents higher than Gramercy and more crowds than Soho, but it’s popular for a reason: The quaint streets are lined with inventive New York Restaurants, rooftop bars, and eclectic shops, and throngs of people flock to the waterfront for flea markets and giant food bazaars during the summer.
Given its status as a hipster hub, it’s no surprise that Williamsburg is brimming with well-curated vintage stores, music and book stores and gift shops. Sure, the neighborhood has been flooded with chains like J.Crew and Urban Outfitters, but judging by the list of local indie stores and some of the best shops in NY, it’s safe to say that the 'hood is still rad as hell. Whether you’re shopping on a small or large budget, this Brooklyn treasure trove is the place to go for one-of-a-kind shopping.
