About Bushwick Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Sandwiched between Williamsburg and Ridgewood Queens, Bushwick is quickly becoming the “hip” area to live. It is yet another rapidly gentrifying section of Brooklyn. Street art is so huge in the area that international graffiti artist Banksy has even made his mark. Bushwick is a very large neighborhood and considerably cheaper than its hipster neighbor Williamsburg. The area is mixed with both industrial and residential, suburban vibes. Home to a flourishing restaurant scene, you will find a variety of cuisine, particularly in the northern areas by East Williamsburg. Roberta’s is a famous pizza joint while Bunna Café offers Ethiopian vegan dishes.
