In short, Williamsburg — the trendiest of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods — is young, edgy, hip, artsy. Home to a concoction of artists and ethnically thoroughly diverse residents (Latinos, Hasidic Jews, Italians, Eastern Europeans, to name but a few larger groups), Williamsburg is an enclave filled to the brim with factory lofts, groovy bars, stylish boutiques and mouth-watering eateries. Trend-watchers claim that “when you’re young and artistic, you live in Williamsburg. When you grow up, or decide it’s time to have kids and/or dogs, you move to Park Slope.” Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s version of the East Village, boasts a chock full of galleries and is home to many art festivals and events.
