Williamsburg is a hip neighborhood in Brooklyn that draws the young and the fashionable to its chic boutiques, trendy cafes and buzzy restaurants. Street art brightens residential thoroughfares and repurposed factories, while the waterfront provides stunning views of Manhattan and seasonal venues for outdoor concerts and food markets. Dance clubs, happening bars and music halls liven up the nightlife scene.
Residents of Union Corner have access to several options when commuting to and from Manhattan, and other parts of the boroughs. Just over a block away from 505 Union’s entryway is the Lorimer L/G train. From the L tenants have the quickest access to Manhattan, East Williamsburg, and Bushwick. L train woes fear not; When the L train temporarily suspends transportation to Manhattan the G provides a great alternative. Take the G to the 7 train transfer in LIC to get to Manhattan, and several trains at Grand Central Station. Other ways to travel are the East River Ferry located just a few blocks away, many bus line options, and quick access to the BQE or Williamsburg bridge.
