Bushwick, which neighbors Brooklyn’s astoundingly popular Williamsburg neighborhood, has a storied past. In the 19th century, it was a vital part of America’s beer history and known as the beer capital. By the 1970s, all of the breweries in Bushwick had closed. For a long stretch of time following, this Brooklyn neighborhood was neglected and many of the buildings were shuttered. However, in recent years, Bushwick is experiencing a renaissance. Factory facades have been transformed into canvases for talented street artists and creative types are flocking to the area.
