Vibrant, noisy, and artistic are just some of the words one could use to describe Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A recent visit to New York with the Condé Nast College, provided the opportunity to explore this amazing area.
The shopping experience in Brooklyn is quite different compared to that of Manhattan’s Soho or Madison Avenue. People in Williamsburg are also different from those in Manhattan – much more alternative, their unique style suggestive of Bohemia and endless artistry reflects the area itself.
If you like shopping in East London, Williamsburg is definitely the place for you. It has plentiful little boutiques with special, vintage characters … so take your time to explore. You will be rewarded with unique and impressive pieces, unusual jewellery, amazing old style leather handbags, shoes, clothes and top quality second-hand goods for all budgets! Many artists and designers sell their products in the street, making a walk in this area incredibly interesting, inspiring and interactive. The experience of meeting and talking, face-to-face, with the designers and the creators of whatever catches your attention is fascinating. The photos taken while discovering this fabulous area speak for themselves… we can’t wait to go back!
