Williamsburg – it’s a little bit hipster-matic

April 5, 2013 — 2 Comments

Still working on finding a new place, so here’s some more happy snaps, this time from Williamsburg.

By all accounts, this used to be a very dodgy neighbourhood – now it’s filled with dodgy beards, tattoos, Australians, and developers.

It’s also home to some pretty good coffee, shoe stores, and micro brewery’s, but the Burg is far from a cheap neighbourhood – housing and rental prices now mirror Manhattan.

I haven’t eaten at a lot of places there but I have visited the well known Meatball Shop and Peters, as well as a couple of small restaurants, but nothing amazing as yet!

I’ll just keep going for the coffee…
