Williamsburg is home to an eclectic mix of indie boutique shops, trendy bars and clubs, and locally owned eateries. It is also home to many families who have decided to raise children in one of the most trendy, fashion-forward neighborhoods in NYC, that in turn has evolved into an incredibly family-friendly nabe. Williamsburg is full of kid-friendly restaurants, fun baby clothing and book stores, mommy-and-me-classes, indoor playgrounds, and even live-music kid concerts!
