Williamsburg Bridge Walking Path Professional Reviews and Guides

"Williamsburg’s 21st-century reinvention as hipster haven Billyburg occurred after decades of poverty and neglect. It’s only the latest transformation for an area that’s had many identities.

From a farming village within the 17th-century Dutch settlement of Boswijck (Bushwick), Williamsburg grew into a center of brewing and manufacturing and by 1852 was large enough to charter as a city. It lost its independence, and the h at the end of its name, when annexed by the city of Brooklyn three years later. Its days as a well-off suburb and resort came to an end with the 1903 opening of the Williamsburg Bridge, which you cross on this walk."

"This ride journeys through the two northwest Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, where an array of cultures vie for space.

You’ll bike through the heart of Williamsburg, where hipster culture reigns supreme, and traverse the Williamsburg Bridge for a bird’s-eye view of the neighborhood. You’ll then cycle southward through the Hasidic enclave of South Williamsburg before heading into Greenpoint farther north. Also known as Little Poland, the community’s Eastern European roots are evident on almost every block."
