How did Williamsburg become such a must-see in just a few years?
For most people who visit the Big Apple, New York is limited to Manhattan Island. Yet among the neighboring boroughts, if we cross the East River we can find some small pearls like Williamsburg the most prominent district of Brooklyn, this district at the base very popular (it was a district very frequented by the Latino community formerly ) has become in a few years a must-see place for all New Yorkers. In Williamsburg all kinds of hipsters, artists, bobos, intellectuals and students meet. A very nice area for a nice stroll or to party, you won't get bored!
The post-modern setting of the place with its old warehouses transformed into bars or art galleries, invites you to stroll. A district where a totally artistic atmosphere reigns… However, it remains a problem now that everyone knows this place, I'm afraid that the place will turn into a trendy theater for bobo and lose its authenticity.
