Wandering Williamsburg

Monday, October 17, 2016


Williamsburg, Brooklyn: the neighborhood with charming restaurants on not-so-charming streets. Since moving uptown my trips to the eclectic neighborhood have become less frequent, but each time I make the journey it's always worth the ride. 

These days Williamsburg is reaching its peak of gentrification, but what I love most (other than the thriving culinary scene) are the lingering indications of its artistic, dare I say hipster days. Despite being a hub for young millennials and brunch connoisseurs, the Brooklyn neighborhood is still far from refined. Its streets are lined with unoccupied, run-down buildings like this pale blue spot that carry a history of which we have no knowledge. That is the quiet beauty of Wiliamsburg -- the marks from years past that have no clear origins, yet continue to tell the story of this continuously evolving place.

  3. Actually the first few photos where you only see the grey building behind you I would have guessed you were somehwere in Europe. It has been a very long time since I have lived in NYC and visited brooklyn but it sounds like things are changing rapidly. Not only that it is getting more gentrified, but that the well-off hipsters are getting replaced by the even better off techies?!

  17. Since I'm in a tropical country, obviously, I can't wear some coats or sweaters anymore. So whenever I see fall and winter outfits, I just couldn't help but admire and wonder when I'd be able to wear these layers again. Anyhow, I really love your chic yet comfy style. :) Hope to hear from you soon!

    Love, Airish
