With this city guide you’ll get to those hotspots in cool and upcoming Bushwick!
Just to help you guys out on where to find the best hotspots Your Little Black Book made this map with handpicked shops, coffee places and restaurants located in the coolest parts of Bushwick. Just realize that Bushwick is becoming uber cool so it might be already outdated in a couple of months from now. What’s that? Maybe a couple of weeks. Things go fast here in New York.
Even the most beautiful street art is changed into new and fresh pieces eventually. Combine a (self-) guided graffiti tour with the below mentioned spots for a classic taste of vibrant Bushwick!
