"Up and coming street"
Technically, Bogart street is in Bushwick, not Williamsburg. But, a lot of real estate people are trying to market this part of town as East Williamsburg to entice renters. And, Bushwick is really starting to hipsterize so it is somewhat of an extension of Willy nowadays. A lot of the arty kinds of people started to push back into this area when the rents in Willy became nearly comparable to Manhattan. And, this part of town isn't quite as lively or safe as Williamsburg (though nowhere in New York is technically "safe"), but it is starting to come into its own. Bogart Street has a couple of little bars and restaurants such as the Morgan, a little sushi joint, a cafe, etc. And, there is a great 24 hour bodega so now you know the kids have started to arrive. My favorite restaurant in the Williamsburg area, Robertas, is just off of Bogart and it is an absolute must for anyone who lives nearby. Being that Robertas is always packed, I'd say it's a good indication that this street is just about there. But, it's still not quite yet, in my opinion. Parts of it can be a little wasteland looking and it still seems scary at night. I would live here if I were a young guy, but as a woman, it still is a little precarious to me. Oh, and the trip to Manhattan is at least 30 minutes which is a major downer if you work in the city.
