Bushwick poised to take its place as W’burg’s heir

While Bushwick has been an artsy enclave for a while, the harbingers of full-on gentrification have recently popped up in the neighborhood, the New York Times reported.

In addition to the cafes and more fringe art events, brand name art galleries such as Luhring Augustine, which has a gallery at 25 Knickerbocker Avenue, at Ingraham Street, have moved in. The gallery, which also has a Chelsea outpost, opened its Bushwick space last October. Interstate Projects, another gallery, opened at 56 Bogart Street last March, and Nurture Art, a not-for-profit gallery moved to the same address last August.

“I feel as if a new gallery pops up every week, either in someone’s basement or inside the new arts center at 56 Bogart,” resident Carolina Miranda told the Times. “Bushwick is really at the point where it’s not just some loose arts scene but is transforming into a full-fledged arts district.” [NYT]
