Is S 4th Street in Williamsburg Brooklyn a posh/expensive place? is it like Lower Manhattan SoHo or Tribeca in terms of being cost of living/rent/posh surrounding?

Pretty much everything in Williamsburg is expensive by various metrics.

You're definitely talking about the nicer, hip part of Williamsburg. But its not comparable to Soho or Tribeca in that it's not 'posh' in the least. Its more of a young, artsy vibe, AKA hipsters and trust funders.

Negative action? Is Southside Williamsburg full of crime?

Off topic a little bit, but I wonder why there are nunbered streets in one of the northernmost neighborhoods in Brooklyn with "South" prefixes

Roebling and South 4th the "hip part of Williamsburg"? I would assume that distinction would go to the Northside, not the Southside... I agree somewhat with the second part but Southside is still a decent mix of old timers and the new crowd...

Never said full of crime, but the 90th precinct (which covers Southside and East Williamsburg) has seen more action this year than Bushwick (83rd precinct). There's also been more shootings in the 90th precinct than the 83rd... It's still not that bad, but there are pockets in Williamsburg that are still gentrifying and have become robbery hot spots... parts of Southside by the East Williamsburg border (S1st-S4th, Roebling, Hooper, Broadway, Marcy, Borinquen Plaza, Rodney, Keap, Hewes, etc.). All these blocks I mentioned are much improved from what they used to be even five years ago, but the criminal element is still present and even though the numbers don't exactly seem to correlate with it, it just feels like the 90th has taken a step back this year...

Because the North and South sides of Williamsburg are separated by the bridge... The shift starts to happen around Metro/Grand St. where you'll start to see N1-N12 I believe... That's the side that is almost completely gentrified if not already... That's also the area that would probably command rents most similar to Soho and Tribeca in Brooklyn...
