Williamsburg is still the coolest New York neighbourhood – this is why

It still felt a little sketchy late at night, although there was the usual hipster creep: super-fun, bulb-lit bar Carmelo’s on DeKalb Avenue, Milk & Pull coffee on Irving Street. It’s probably how I’d have felt in Williamsburg a decade ago. This neighbourhood, on the East River, was one of the first to kickstart Brooklyn’s metamorphosis from gritty to glam, attracting a bunch of Manhattanites across the Williamsburg Bridge for its cheaper rents and bigger spaces.
