A ghetto neighborhood in north Brooklyn, and was once considered the worst town in America. Bushwick is known for the Crips, and is dirty, dangerous, dirty, and unpleasant to live in. The neighborhood is also mostly a Black Community, though the western side has a lot of Hispanics and Russians.
I was rollin' thorugh Bushwick the other day, and noticed that it's mad hood.

If you guys had half a brain you would know that according to police statistics your girl is twice as likely to get raped in Manhattan. In fact, you are twice as likely to get mugged in the big shiny city as well. Now, the reason why I will not take any of you guys seriously is because I’ve lived in Bushwick for 3 years. My neighbors are the best - mostly artists, driven out from Williamsburg by these sweet-hearted people you like so much. Beside, if you look closely at statistics you’ll see that bushwick is not mostly black but mostly Hispanic and a growing population of Polish and Asian have set up shop here. My conclusion is that you are a bunsh of morons, the same type you will find reading cosmos while sipping on a $4 coffee and yes, the same type of halfwits who have been driving up real estate prices in shiny places to a sad reality.

Area in Brooklyn that, according to New York Magazine, has the highest number of registered sex offenders in NYC, the most rape per capita of any neighborhood in NYC, and is high on the list for other violent crime.

"Bushwick" stops at Graham Ave. on the East, no matter what your landlord/real estate agent tells you.
Bushwick may have a couple of hipsters, but it's still pretty fucking hood.

Why don't those hipsters just shut up about how great they've made the neighborhood?

An area in Brooklyn, full of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Mexicans, and some Blacks.

Bushwick is word thats describes the "hard knock life". Its a struggle and a bitch, but u have to build your own sidewalk so u can get some respect. If not, then you just another piece of gum on the floor. So if you wanna be man, step in our area, and see u be the gum getting stepped on, or the baller who steps on it.
Be an ARMY of 1, or step to Bushwick, and make your own.

Once the home of the "Best Beer in America" in the 1950s-70s, the economy of Brooklyn's brewery town was demolished by the Blackout/riot of 1977. Flagged by Williamsburg on the west, East NY on the right, and Ridgewood on the North, Bushwick is fast becoming a boom-town for yuppies relocating from the South Side.
