Though Williamsburg is still a train ride away from where I live, it's the difference of spending 20 minutes on the train vs one hour it takes me to commute to Manhattan. Plus I can actually drive there, something I would not undertake when going to Manhattan because of the insane traffic and expensive parking. Definitely an improvement! I'm sure it would take a year at the very least till the Brooklyn Anthropologie opens its doors, but I look forward to it with much anticipation.
