Bushwick

A gritty industrial neighborhood with pockets of artistic creativity.

Bushwick is the neighborhood of choice for young artist types, who populate many of the hulking warehouse buildings, as they once did SoHo, TriBeCa, Williamsburg, and DUMBO. Though the neighborhood is just to the southeast of ultra-hip Williamsburg, Bushwick retains an authentic urban character that differentiates it from other trendy Brooklyn neighborhoods.Bushwick is home to an exciting arts scene, with galleries, bookstores and concert venues. For a night out, residents head to local dive bars or one of New York City’s best pizza spots, Roberta’s. Photo courtesy of Wally Gobetz via Flickr.
