Answers

East Williamsburg is also referred to Bushwick and both are areas that are trying to be more up and coming, but are stuck in its old ways. I have friends who live in that area and have experienced some robberies and harassment so be careful about going out / coming home late at night as the neighborhoods there still are populated with generations past and have racial tensions. See where you are in respect to nightlife and dining and the train to see if its worth it.
