Neighborhood Description

North Brooklyn neighborhood Bushwick is south and east of Williamsburg, the area it is most often connected with, in an age of ever-blurring neighborhood lines. Bushwick also borders Bedford-Stuyvesant, East New York, Brownsville and Ridgewood, Queens.

As the 21st century began, Bushwick saw many of the positive changes that much of New York City had been experiencing. Since the early 2000s, Bushwick, along with Williamsburg, has gained a reputation as a neighborhood of artists, and the area is home to many galleries and art studios. Websites are devoted to promoting arts in the neighborhood, and there are regularly scheduled open studio days that invite the public to learn about new artists. Now Bushwick, with neighboring areas Greenpoint and Williamsburg, has gained fame from being featured in the HBO series “Girls.” Myrtle, Knickerbocker, Broadway and Wyckoff are where residents will find commercial businesses. Restaurants range from family run taco shops to new boutique cafes. Roberta’s pizza has become a destination restaurant, and other popular spots include Bunna Cafe for Ethiopian food, Tchoup Shop for Cajun and creole, Momo Sushi Shack, and Arepera Guacuco Restaurant.

One of the six original Dutch towns in Brooklyn, Bushwick has seen many neighborhood changes since it was purchased by the Dutch West India Company in 1638. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the area was a fertile farmland. Factories were built in Bushwick in the mid-1800s, as were breweries—at one point, Bushwick was considered a beer capital, but the last remaining brewery closed in 1976. From the 1960s through 1980s Bushwick saw an influx of residents from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Central America, bringing new cultural influences and shaping the character of the neighborhood. During the second half of the 20th century Bushwick saw many neighborhood changes, moving from prosperity to poverty as businesses closed and residents moved to other areas or suburban communities. The area was hit particularly hard during the 1977 blackout with looting, arson and vandalism, and the 1980s and 1990s were challenging times for the neighborhood.

The L train, as well as the J, M and Z trains, all provide service to Bushwick and connect riders with Williamsburg and other Brooklyn neighborhoods, and Manhattan’s east side.
