The life in Bushwick hasn’t stopped despite the devastation in other neighborhoods. Let’s be grateful for this and take this opportunity to explore the neighborhood beyond our regular routes.
According to Bushwick business owners
, it seems that that’s what many Bushwick residents have been doing in the past couple of days. Support local art and go to the openings this weekend, because as
and other places in New York, art shouldn’t be taken for granted.
