"Good for business and living, parking scarce."

So much has changed post-gentrification..Many more people living here and development not showing signs of slowing down. So, of course, rents and demand goes up!! I think it's great that many more people have come into the neighborhood, we just really need the City & DOT to take notice and address parking problem for residents.(i.e. Remove the recently added metered-parking, where no meters existed up until June 2016).
Cons
  • New metered parking bad for residents

"The Poor Man's Mall"

I'm not sure I would agree that the shops on this street are "cute." There is only one that I would recommend visiting - and only if you happen to be stuck in the area for some inexplicable reason. That is a shop called Lash Boutique. I bought the dress I wore on New Year's there because I didn't feel like going into the city, but it's sort of like if H&M migrated to Graham Ave and had to call itself something new in order to fit in. The coolest in the area but nothing incredible.

Anyway - this street is what one of my associates once referred to as "the poor man's mall." Nothing could describe it better. One of the local electronic shops sells blank DVDs separately - something you probably won't see in the RadioShack across the street. The shops are all incredibly cheap, and don't come recommended.

The street itself is generally really crowded with shoppers and Dunkin Donuts customers. Wouldn't want to live here, though there are some decent apartments on this street that are relatively inexpensive due to the location.
Pros
  • some very decent eateries
  • every cell phone company rents a storefront on Graham
Cons
  • gets shadier as you approach Broadway
bettyc
bettyc What too many folks on this site are not understanding is Graham Ave. extends all the way south to Broadway and the M/J train (Flushing Ave. station). From Bdwy to Boerum is a major affordable retail district worth exploring...there is also a fab farmers market on Cook St. and Graham on Sat. from 8 to 5 pm run by the local BID. North of this the area is more restaurant oriented...but down here there is the only Dairy Queen in Brooklyn, Models, I Hop all the fast foods, Mc D's, Popeyes, Burger King, Taco Bell, Pretzel Twister, Yogurt Dessert etc. plus other great dessert places...and Crunch gym to work it off!
There are a few great restaurants like East Wick...but this is the best place to buy your stuff...all your stuff and give the UPS a break!. It's local shopping that you can explore/enjoy/save. It is also changing...getting more upscale...but for now take advantage of the savings here...live on either end of Graham...it is the best kept secrete in Williamsburg.

"Cute little shops pn this Williamsburg street."

Graham Ave is awesome and artsy. The neighborhood has so many cute little shops and is a new mecca for artsy hipster kids. This street always smells like food and Phoebe's café has some amazing drinks. Their food is so delicious and the regulars are always hanging out there. They have local art displayed inside and this street is easily accessible by train on Graham and Metropolitan Ave.
