Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Williamsburg is the epicenter of Brooklyn as a fashionable worldwide brand. The neighborhood may have rents higher than Gramercy and more crowds than Soho, but it’s popular for a reason: The quaint streets are lined with inventive New York restaurants, rooftop bars and eclectic shops, and throngs of people flock to the waterfront for flea markets and giant food bazaars during the summer. Heed the hipster call.

I love Brooklyn. Only thing it is missing is LookBooker (www.lookbooker.co). Once I don't have to go back to Manhattan for my hair and beauty appointments I'll be shacking up with WBerg
