Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York – The Gayborhood

Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Few neighborhoods in the country are more hipster-identified than Williamsburg, which sits handily across the East River from Manhattan’s East Village and Lower East Side (two diverse, gay-popular, but more expensive neighborhoods in their own right).

Much of the best café culture and shopping is centered upon the several blocks surrounding the Bedford Avenue (L Train) subway stop, especially along Berry Street and Bedford Avenue, but as the neighborhood’s rents have risen, creative sorts have moved increasingly eastward along Grand Street and across the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway toward East Williamsburg and even Bushwick.

Nightspots like the loveably dive-y Abbey Bar and Metropolitan (known for its Dragnet and Metro-Sensual parties) rank among the favorite gay hangouts in the five boroughs, while the intimate Woods Bar, which is home to a great patio, has a weekly queer party on Wednesdays.
