Brooklyn is a large, diverse place. You’ll need to narrow it down to a hotel name or at least cross street for us to help you 🙂 (i’ve spent a lot of time in Brooklyn).

Hipsters aren’t contagious. You know what comes with hipsters? Awesome coffee, great boutique shopping, and interesting bars. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, Kansas.

I think it depends on what you want to get out of your NYC experience.  If you want to do all the typical NYC things, then stay in Manhattan.  If you don’t mind doing unique things or trying new places, stay in Brooklyn.

Where in Brooklyn? I’d be more worried about the MTA shutting down trains on weekends than Girls extras running around (sounds like Greenpoint is not for you).

@QueenOfSerendip:  unless it is a super good deal I would stay in Manhattan And this is coming from someone born and raised in BK. If it is a good deal, Williamsburg is literally a hop, skip, and a jump out of the city (Manhattan).

@QueenOfSerendip:  Williamsburg is north of Park Slope and Brooklyn Heighta. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, boutiques, and artsy shops there. 

I would consider it a “hipster” area but they are nice and it could be fun. I would stay rather stay in the actual city though.

I have considered it, but have ultimately always decided to stay in Manhattan. I just don’t want to spend my precious time on subway trains.

@QueenOfSerendip:  Dreaded G train. I would double check whether your trip overlaps with the weekend service cancellations.

@crayfish:  LOL

OP – I like Brooklyn a lot!  But your guests have to be willing to hop a train (subway) to get to Manhattan, if that’s where your events are located.

@QueenOfSerendip:  lol if you want to avoid the moustaches and plaid, you better stay out of Williamsburg.

Edit: but hipsters arn’t sketchy.
