3 Best Sights in Bushwick, New York City

The Bushwick Collective

Bushwick Fodor's choice

Bushwick is well known for its street art, as the Brooklyn graffiti scene endures with colorful, larger-than-life murals. It's all encouraged, supported, and curated by this urban art collective, under the helm of Joseph Ficalora. The outdoor street art gallery is omnipresent as you walk Troutman Street and the adjacent blocks of St. Nicholas Avenue and Wyckoff Avenue, the area's main drag. Fans of global street art will recognize featured artists, including Carlitos Skills, Ruben Ubiera, and Mr. Blob.   Every summer, the Collective throws a block party that's a mix of DJ music, food trucks, and local makers selling their wares. Check their website for details.

Luhring Augustine

East Williamsburg
Probably the neighborhood's most established gallery, this annex of the Chelsea original is worth a stop to see whatever show is up and to appreciate its soaring space and cantilevered ceiling.

Moore Street area street art

Bushwick and East Williamsburg have become synonymous with street art, and there are some impressive, constantly changing murals over by Roberta's restaurant. Start on White Street, at Seigel Street, then head south on White to Moore Street, east on Moore to Bogart Street, then north on Bogart and east on Grattan Street.
