Williamsburg

The ’Burg has quite the reputation as Brooklyn’s definitive hipster hub. In truth, though, the area is as diverse as anything, with large Hispanic and Hasidic communities in addition to more recent arrivals. While it’s undeniable that Williamsburg has more than its fair share of thrift shops, galleries and upscale eateries, the nabe is also home to some of the borough’s most authentic taquerias and the rare Jewish bodega, if you know where to look.
