As the up-and-coming bohemian hangout of Brooklyn, Bushwick is chock-full of apartments to both rent and buy.
The neighborhood is sometimes described as a unique melding of the East Village and Williamsburg, rolled into the
industrial setting of northeastern Brooklyn. Former industrial lofts and warehouses have been converted to live/
work spaces, as well as artists’ studios. Many of these residences and work spaces in Bushwick still retain details, like
expansive spaces and soaring ceilings, found in those old lofts and warehouses.
Plenty of townhouses and detached homes with a more traditional feel, designed in architectural styles such as
Italianate, Neo-Greco, Romanesque Revival and Queen Anne, all built by well-known architects, are also available in
Bushwick. As for new construction, postmodern condo developments have begun to spring up in recent years. Some
of these luxury buildings have amenities that include roof decks (perfect for a view of the city, or of St. Barbara’s
Roman Catholic Church at Central Avenue — one of the tallest buildings in Brooklyn).
The neighborhood is truly reflective of its residents — art galleries, performance spaces, cafés, bars and hip restaurants
are popping up all over. But other amenities also abound, including the Bushwick Green Park (erected on the former
site of the Rheingold Beer factory) and the Bushwick Pool and Park with an expansive pool, handball courts, basketball
courts and a children’s playground.
