Bushwick area is known for communal art collectives and creative environment, a place for young creative minds to meet and flourish.
Bushwick was one of the borough’s first European settlements and has been known for many things over its long history: for its farms, then for its breweries and factories, one of the oldest breweries landmark building(from 1867) is in front of House of Words.
Fast forward to more recent times, following the momentum east from Williamsburg first the artists and pop-up venues arrived. The restaurateurs and developers were soon to follow, creating the hotspot locale that is modern day Bushwick.
These days, all kinds of creative types filing into Bushwick, and a considerable amount of trendiness is trickling in from its ultra-hip neighbor to the west, Williamsburg.
New dive bars, bodegas, and gallery spaces continue to flourish, fueled by the intrepid movers and shakers that are pouring into Bushwick’s converted loft spaces. Although Bushwick is busy reinventing itself, a somewhat grungy heart still beats beneath its remodeled exterior.
