The New Hot Neighborhood?

Interesting article today on Bushwick, a neighborhood that used to be the epitome of working class Brooklyn. Bushwick still is, to a large degree, blue-collar haven and it has some of the few factories left in NYC as well as thriving Jewish community.

But in the last few years fancy cafes and yoga classes and yuppies are starting to appear. Increasingly it is getting gentrified. I've heard of people from Manhattan moving to Bushwick and buying big houses and renovating them. Just watch: in a few years, like Park Slope and Williamsburg before it, Bushwick will be the hot New York neighborhood that everyone wants a piece of. And don't say you didn't hear it here first.

My grandmother was from Bushwick, and then and out now it was a neighborhood with lots of immigrants. It's one of those neighborhoods that make NYC such an amazing and unique place.
