Williamsburg: Brooklyn’s hip neighbourhood

3 hours | from $47.50 per person

Creative, hip(ster) and diverse, it’s no wonder Williamsburg is renowned for being the city’s trendiest neighbourhood. But there’s more to this area than hipsters, craft beers and artisan roasted coffee - from street art to small galleries, independent music venues to boutiques selling locally made jewellery, you’ll soon see that the area has more than earned its artistic credentials! Soak up the independent spirit, creativity and unique street style in this local enclave as you explore with a local, and discover another side to this urban paradise.

What you'll do

Join a like-minded local to explore NY’s hippest local neighbourhood, and discover that there’s more to this urban paradise than you might have heard!

Discover the area’s heritage, and see how its history of immigration has helped shape it into such a diverse area where you’ll find global influences everywhere from the cuisine to the street art. 

Browse independent boutiques, vintage shops, second hand record stores and a flea market where you’ll find more artisan produced crafts than flea market junk. 

Grab a craft beer or stop by an independent coffee shop, pick up some delicious street food or head to a classic NY deli before you head to the local park and to relax like the locals! 

Get tips and tricks from your local about the best places to eat and drink in the area, so you can sip cocktails on a rooftop or drink craft brews on a barge overlooking the Manhattan skyline just like Williamsburg’s locals do!

What to expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
