Visitors to New York City either think they know Williamsburg or that it’s just not for them. Having a more recent reputation as a home to hipsters or seeing the extensive L train renovations may have put you off from taking the trip over / under the East River. Well not only is Like A Local Tours a Williamsburg expert, but it’s also our home neighborhood! When you join us there, you’ll hear our guides talk about the history of the neighborhood from First Nations to immigration, the boom and then bust, and the eventual reinvention of the area. We walk the side streets and back streets, take in the unique view of the Manhattan Skyline, and spend time at some of the delicious Mom and Pop eateries that the neighborhood has to offer, all giving you a foundation to Williamsburg that can be used to then go adventuring yourself.
