NYC Bushwick Brooklyn art

Every time I come by Bushwick in Brooklyn I find new mural art all around the unique streets. New York City mural art in Bushwick is very unique and it attracts many visitors that come by to take pictures next to each wall mural.

Other attractions include vintage shopping, creative restaurants like pizza trendsetter Roberta’s and the diverse creative multicultural residents. Easily get to Bushwick in Brooklyn by subway taking the L train to Morgan or Jefferson St. The neighborhood offers a thoroughly bohemian vibe with bodegas and warehouses abutting galleries and bars.

Now the Bushwick in Brooklyn is seeing a renaissance, as artists pushed out of Williamsburg and elsewhere move in and raise property values. Bushwick offers cool living spaces mainly lofts in old factories, sometimes with great access to outdoor space.

During the pandemic there are not many visitors walking around. But, during any regular weekend you will find hundreds of people enjoying the Bushwick mural art and eating at the very authentic restaurants and food carts in the streets.

Best days to come to Bushwick in Brooklyn is during the week. You will find less visitors trying to take a picture with a mural art and you won’t have to wait a long time to get a table at a popular restaurant here in Bushwick.

The Dutch name for the village of Bushwick was “Boswijck”, which translates as “Town in the Woods”. The name was
assigned to the town by Peter Stuyvesant at the time of his visit in 1661. It was an appropriate name to describe the
early Dutch village and its vicinity since the community fell within the woodlands that marked the border district between Brooklyn and Queens. Thanks to Borough of Brooklyn, for New York city Department of Housing Preservation and Development. Revised October 1989. For this cool fact.

Red Hook Brooklyn New York City

Red Hook Brooklyn was founded in 1836 by Dutch colonists. This is why we can notice so many Holland style warehouse buildings all around Red Hook Brooklyn.

I went to a bike ride and sat by the river while having my favorite Latin America coffee. I still drink hot black coffee during any hot summer day in NYC.

By the 1920s, they made Red Hook the busiest freight port in the world, but this ended in the 1960s with the creation of shipping containers. Then by the 1930s Red Hook became one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York and it was called ‘city for the homeless’ or ‘Hooverville’.

Most of Red Hook has changed due to gentrification. People from around the world have moved here mainly artists. IKEA has also set its main chain store right by the East River. These and other reasons have contributed to an increase in rent in Red Hook. I still believe this area needs more improvement to be classified as a ‘hot spot’ for real estate agents. The area does not have easy access to public transportation specially the NYC Subway.
