The first thing you will learn if you move to the Northside of Williamsburg is that you will waste $50/month on ATM fees. There are no chain banks on the Northside, and most restaurants only accept cash. The best option is to open a checking or savings account at Cross County Bank. They offer Excellent Savings account interest rates, with free internet bill paying. The inside of the bank is very nicely done, and the staff is friendly and eager to help. Also, the bank itself is about 3 stores down from the Bedford L stop, and directly in front of the B61 bus stop.
