In the popular imagination, Williamsburg is a bohemian theme park for unrazored kids with bikes and tattoos. Urban rustic bars and eccentric warehouse dance clubs stand (aloof) next to vintage stores and greasy spoons serving surprisingly good fried chicken. That's in the popular imagination.
In reality, the hipsterdom of Williamsburg is only one aspect of the neighborhood, just like the Hasidim, the Spanish-speaking community, and the aging working-class Europeans smoking cigars on stoops. But if you're looking for stereotypes, this corner's got 'em. Just look at the plethora of bikes out front.
