Feast and Frolic along the Williamsburg WaterfrontWilliamsburg is undoubtedly one of Brooklyn's most sought after neighborhoods to live, work and play. Even if you're only in town for a weekend, you can still feel like a local hipster. There's always something going on along the waterfront, whether it's an outdoor market or a scheduled community event.
Both Smorgasburg (Saturdays) and the Brooklyn Flea (Sundays) take place along the water, giving spectators a stunning view of Manhattan. While Smorgasburg caters to foodies, with food carts and free samples along with hearty lunch plates, the Flea focuses on one-of-a-kind vintage items and unique antiques.
