BUSHWICK

Bushwick is a neighborhood in the northern part of Brooklyn, bordered by East Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy, and Ridgewood. The neighborhood is home to a diverse population of Hispanic immigrant families, young creative professionals, artists, musicians, and university students. Since 2000, Bushwick’s population has risen by nearly 15 percent.

Traditionally a working class neighborhood, Bushwick has experienced a resurgence in recent years as artists, creators and young professionals migrated from the city and neighboring East Williamsburg. As a result, Bushwick has become a magnet for cultural institutions, nightlife, tech entrepreneurs, creative agencies and recording studios. There are over 80 galleries, 1,000+ artist studios, music venues, pop-up stores, cutting edge restaurants and bars calling Bushwick home.

Bushwick is bounded by the neighborhood of Ridgewood, Queens, to the northeast; Williamsburg to the northwest; East New York and the cemeteries of Highland Park to the southeast; Brownsville to the south; and Bedford-Stuyvesant to the southwest.
