So far, there is a dearth of information on what to expect from the forthcoming Pod Williamsburg, but, Capital New York reports that it will be located at Driggs Avenue and N. 4th Street, and that it will have "more than" 200 rooms. Capital NY also reports that architect, Jim Garrison, is considering utilizing modular construction.
We took a peek at the site and here's how the scene is looking right now.
With a funky little wine bar on the same block, thrift stores, street art, and a Foodtown for stocking up on cheap dinners around the corner, the young, budget-conscious European backpackers are going to be happy here.
We will be keeping an eye on this and will share more news when we get it.
