Williamsburg’s younger, more anarchic inhabitants are now found southeast in industrial Bushwick: a vast expanse of artists’ lofts, underground music venues, graffiti-swathed alleyways, obscure saloons, and avant-garde eateries. With a resolute DIY ethos and reminiscent more of Berlin than Brooklyn, Bushwick offers today’s visitor a glimpse of what the East Village or the Lower East Side might once have been. Brooklyn’s latest generation of artists and musicians are filling this traditionally blue-collar neighbourhood with exhilarating new colours, sounds and flavours. Whet your appetite with the area’s many large-scale street artworks, perhaps on a guided tour, before visiting some of the nearby contemporary galleries for innovative installations, category-transforming digital works, sculpture and illustration, painting and photography. Then devour equally innovative cooking, either from eateries housed in repurposed industrial spaces, or served from DIY venues, chameleonic loft spaces and the galleries themselves. Garnish the whole sumptuous affair with craft cocktails and local draughts, before an eve of quintessentially Bushwick distraction.
