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.

New Yorkers Using Boarded Storefronts For Art in Soho

Many New Yorkers remember New York City by the glitz and glam of the streets of Lower Manhattan,
along which fashion conglomerates and cozy boutiques stand. Mannequins pose in the
windows, beckoning tourists to collect the newest, trendiest items from the laps of luxury.

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis and the protests in support of Black Lives Matter, retailers
began to board up their storefronts. Though the fashion industry has gone into quarantine with
the rest of the world, its barren shutters have become a playground for artists who have laid
the true heart of the city bare on their wooden canvases.

Black Lives Matter Art

The retreat of clothing stores behind painted boards seems to mirror the way society is
beginning to question consumerism and capitalism, which have traditionally overshadowed the
urgency of addressing racial injustices. The tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery,
and Breonna Taylor may have been the impetus for the people of New York City to question the
ideals they may have previously upheld.

The colorful images gracing the streets of Lower Manhattan serve as a reminder that our humanity should come before our productivity.

Though they will one day come down to make way once again for the runway of mannequins,
their messages will continue to echo through the streets of the NYC. Immortalizing them in
photographs is just one of many ways to keep the thrum of social justice alive in the
consciousness of those who live in and love this city.
