A thriving Brooklyn borough, Williamsburg is widely considered the epicenter of Brooklyn. Quaint streets are lined with original New York restaurants cooking up unique culinary eats, rooftop bars serve up classic cocktails and craft beer, and eclectic shops offer travelers a unique, one-of-a-kind experience that other cities can’t provide. During the summer, people flock to Williamsburg’s waterfront to enjoy the flea markets and food bazaars. A haven for the well-traveled, curious, and fashionable set, Williamsburg is at the forefront of NYC’s art and fashion scene. Williamsburg is located just 3.6 miles away from Hotel LYN Brooklyn.
Known for its culture and love of the arts, no visit to Brooklyn would be complete without visiting the Brooklyn Museum. Featuring over 1.5 million works, the Brooklyn Museum was founded in 1895 and has antiques spanning over 3,000 years. Although it includes an international collection, the museum features a lot of American artists like Mark Rothko, Edward Hopper, Norman Rockwell, Winslow Homer, Edgar Degas, Georgia O’Keefe, and Max Weber. The museum also has a “Memorial Sculpture Garden,” which features salvaged architectural elements throughout NYC.
