Good morning, Bushwick fellas. I am reporting from the warmth and coziness of my favorite coffee shop. I hope you are on the same vibe, enjoying this rainy day and all you need is a good read. Turn on your Christmas lights, get yourself a nice mug of cofee and browse through this awesome online book A history of the city of Brooklyn including the old town and village of Brooklyn, the town of Bushwick, and the village and city of Williamsburgh by Henry R. Stiles originally published 1867.

Did you know that Bushwick was called Boswijck in the 17th century and was settled by Dutch farmers? I know. I’ve done myself at least 4 “awws” by now.
