Brooklyn
 
I want to walk across Brooklyn Bridge...how far from Williamsburg area and borough park when entering Brooklyn?

When you come off the bridge as a pedestrian, you're basically at Caldman Plaza and Prospect Street. Google Maps{R} tells me you'd then have to walk 2.6 more miles to get to the Williamsburg part of Brooklyn.

Note that there's also a Williamsburg Bridge from Manhattan into that neighborhood.

Boro Park is too far to walk.

On the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn heights is some of the most beautiful residential architecture, Atlantic Avenue with mideastern stores and restaurants and the best view of Manhattan from the Promenade.

Hipster Williamsburg is fine but the Heights is much more compelling.

If you wind up going to Williamsburg, my wife, one of her sisters, and I have work on exhibition at the Brooklyn Art Library as part of the Sketchbook Project. We each made a small book, theirs contains watercolors, mine photographer and last year it toured the US. This year it is on permanent display.

My book is S94710
My wife's is S94711.
