    Plum NYC

    Check out this excellent home in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn from our friends at ThePlumGuide. Williamsburg is the home of hipsterism and a global trendsetter – in other words, it’s where the cool kids hang out. Here, you’re never far from a craft beer or artisan coffee, and some of New York’s hottest ahead-of-the-curve restaurants line the once-dilapidated dockside streets. The locals (an eclectic mix of young creative professionals) like to keep it casual, and know how to have a good time: join them at Smorgasburg to feast on food-truck fare in the open-air, go for bowling and beers at old-school bowling alley The Gutter, or catch up-and-coming musicians live at Baby’s All Right. The cheap rents that attracted the artist community in the 1990s are long gone, but there’s still a small-scale, independent feel in the time-worn market stalls selling vintage clothes and secondhand books. On top of all that, you’ve got killer views of the Manhattan skyline across the water, best enjoyed from a riverside park or rooftop cocktail bar. Rent an actual apt or a real home, a really nice one that has been vetted by pros. Check out ThePlumGuidetoday.
