“Given its status as a hipster hub, it’s no surprise that Williamsburg is brimming with well-curated vintage stores, music stores and gift shops. Sure, the neighborhood has been flooded with chains like J.Crew and Urban Outfitters, but judging by the list of local indie stores and some of the best shops in NYC, it’s safe to say that the 'hood is still rad as hell.” 

Whether you’re shopping on a small or large budget, this Brooklyn treasure trove is the place to go for one-of-a-kind shopping.
