Williamsburg Real Estate

Forget the hype, this neighborhood really is the best in the world for an every something, and it's quickly becoming a haven for families and empty nesters. It has it all. Just four-minutes to Manhattan with some of the best retail, restaurants, and parks in the city, Williamsburg is fashionable, cultural, artsy, and organic. Food markets, sushi counters, grocers, yoga studios, and the waterfront give it a daily dose of authentic, health-oriented creative cool.

As it grows, it seems to get better. South Williamsburg near the J, M, Z train has loft buildings and a growing food scene anchored by Peter Luger Steakhouse, Diner, and Marlowe & Sons. North Williamsburg tends to be lively with the Wythe Hotel and Brooklyn Bowl. The waterfront has a growing residential scene. East Williamsburg has an edge with non-pretentious flavor and a strong Latino bend. The area around Lorimer and Metropolitan has quiet side streets but a strong nightlife.

Each area has distinct and varied housing. One common thread—prices are going up. This neighborhood might fetch the most bidding wars in the city. Fortunately, it hasn't reached its top price levels meaning some deals can be had. Go any night of the week, pick a new restaurant, you'll feel the energy.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: Antica Pesa. Upscale authentic Italian food on Berry and North 8th Street. The setting is romantic and industrial.

Do: McCarren Park. Run the track, eat the tacos, walk a dog, take a swim, or just lie down and watch the clouds go by. This is as good a neighborhood park as any.

See: Bedford Street. Check it out on a Saturday evening at 4p, 6p, 8p, 10p or later. The throngs of people running around smiling is infectious. It will remind all of you why you came to New York in the first place.
