Description
Bushwick is part of Northwestern Brooklyn and is bound by Ridgewood to the northeast, cemeteries to the southeast, Bedford-Stuyvesant to the southwest, and East Williamsburg to the northwest.

This area is going through something of a transitional phase. While a good portion of the residents still live below the poverty level, the low rents have made it easy for artists to move into converted warehouse around Morgan Avenue and homes along Knickerbocker Avenue.

For many decades, Bushwick has had a growing art scene with scores of art studios and galleries around the neighborhood. There are many programs offered to educate and promote artistic works for public use. Many of the organizations have websites and social media pages to aid in promoting local artists and events.

This neighborhood also has many parks and recreational centers that offer something for residents of all ages. The Maria Hernandez Park has a cool story behind it as it pays tribute to a former Bushwick resident who fought, along with her husband, to keep her neighborhood free of crime. This park has renovated ball courts as well as a performance stage.

In its efforts to improve access to necessities like fresh produce, the Bushwick Farmers' Market opened in 2012. Currently, it operates three markets and two stands at various locations throughout the week.

For those with a food craving, a wide variety of restaurants that include Chimu Express, which serves Peruvian cuisine, the Northeast Kingdom, and Verde Coal Oven Pizza. This neighborhood also has places that specialize in Chinese, Jamaican, Korean, and Mexican cuisine.

One interesting fact about Bushwick is that Daptone Records has its headquarters here. Not only is this the home of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings but also where Daptone's recording studios and engineers are housed. The Daptone recording studio is where Amy Winehouse's CD, Back to Black, was recorded.
