Bushwick Commerce & Culture
You’ll discover what’s most eye-catching about Bushwick architecture may not be the buildings themselves but what’s on them. Street art adorns about every outdoor surface you can think of, with technicolor murals that capture the imagination of tourists and locals alike. Historically, the neighborhood was dominated by factories, including a 14-block “Brewer’s Row” that once helped Brooklyn bottle an estimated 30% of America’s beer — today's breweries are all of the craft variety. Food lovers from all over owe it to themselves to take a bite out of Bushwick. It’s just as likely that an excellent meal will present itself at a cinderblock hole-in-the-wall as in a Michelin-starred restaurant, and you’ll find both and everything in between. Bars and music venues are almost in excess — your new favorite haunt could as readily be on main drags like Knickerbocker or Wyckoff Avenue as it could on any side street.
