Not Like Bedford Avenue: A Look at South Williamsburg

[Photo courtesy of annulla/flickr]

Of course, we're always hitting on hipster Williamsburg, but blogger Blather from Brooklyn offers up an interesting photo look at part of South Williamsburg. That's the corner of the neighborhood where the Satmar community is located and some streets are like period pieces from the 1950s and as unhipster as you can get. Maybe you've read about the neighborhood in the context of some religious rivalries or their interesting unfinished synagogue on Kent Avenue? In any case, have a look at some of the photos of the signage and storefronts around the neighborhood. Great stuff.
