Old Williamsburg: We take a drive through the Ultra Orthodox Hasidic Jewish area where time seems to stand still.
New Williamsburg: This rapidly-changing home to the “Brooklyn Hipster” is a thriving art community with a dazzling array of shops, restaurants and night spots!
Greenpoint: Home to one of the largest Polish populations in the United States, you’ll see a mix of old and new businesses on Manhattan Avenue, which resembles a main street in “small-town” America. Greenpoint’s refreshing feel makes exploring the neighborhood and its culinary delights a real pleasure.
Gowanus: This neighborhood is developing restaurants, art spaces and music venues around its infamous canal. Industrial warehouses and modest row houses stand side by side with excellent culinary and entertainment options.
Carroll Gardens: This Italian immigrant neighborhood of hip bars, boutiques, and restaurants has never lost touch with the past. Garden-fronted brownstones mix with Italian eateries and shops on Smith and Court Streets.
DUMBO: Converted industrial warehouses and vintage loft spaces dominate this arts-oriented neighborhood where you’ll visit Brooklyn Bridge Park for an excellent view of Manhattan’s famous skyline.
