What to do in Bushwick

Bushwick Collective

Bushwick Collective in Bushwick BrooklynOne of the things that makes this neighborhood so famous among visitors now and one of the best things to do in Bushwick is explore the colorful murals on the once empty industrial walls known as the Bushwick Collective.

This giant open air gallery was founded by a local, Joesph Ficalora who wanted to revive himself and his neighborhood after losing his father who was murdered at a nearby subway station and his mother to an illness. Bushwick was known for its high crime rates, which we have seen lower significantly over the decades since then.

Starting the Bushwick Collective was a way for Ficalora to brighten up not only the neighborhood but help him cope with his painful memories, and it took off and helped completely transform the neighborhood.

The Bushwick Collective started in 2012 and in its early years this area did have work done by legendary names in the street art world from Blek le Rat to Banksy, Shepard Fairey, ROA, and other famous local Brooklyn artists like Sara Erenthal whose work you can see all throughout the city.

Ficalora works with the local business and property owners to ‘borrow’ walls for the collective which is done every year usually around the first of June.

So if you came a few years ago, chances are there are all new murals up since then by different artists from all over the world as well as local artists.

This is what to do in Bushwick if you love street art as much as we do – PS you’d probably love the Williamsburg street art too which is not too far away either, or check out our guide to the best Brooklyn street art.

Where is the Bushwick Collective?

You can find most of the murals along Troutman Street between Irving Avenue and Cypress Avenue. It’s best to just walk up and down the streets, make sure you check both sides and peek around as there are some tucked away!

The closest subway station is Jefferson Street Station which operates the L train.

Ok, so now that we’ve covered the legendary House of Yes, and yes it deserves its own mention, there are plenty of places for a great drink any time of the day or nightlife.

What’s even more interesting about Bushwick is that it’s home to Brooklyn’s original ‘Brewer’s Row,’ which was home to a German immigrant population that brought their brew making skills to the states with them and where 10% of the US beer was brewed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries until the prohibition.

There were 14 breweries on a 14 block area at the time! Most of those didn’t survive the prohibition and only two were left until they closed their doors in 1976, but don’t worry since then some have returned which we will cover and now there are many breweries in Brooklyn that have made this borough a beer mecca for fine craft brews.
