BUSHWICK the other side of NEW YORK
Bushwick is a part of New York borough Brooklyn and in between the last 30 years Bushwick turned from hell to heaven. Times ago the city was unattractive, slummy and the buildings were dilapidated. The industry was down and the citizens got more and more distructive. No one wanted to live in Bushwick.
But then some real creative people from outside came to this small town.
They painted the walls, repaired & cleaned up the houses, gave hope to the citizens.
This was the time something incredibly happened to Bushwick.
Artists of all kind made Bushwick turn into an attractive city where all kinds of people come together and
share good inspirations & moods. Some people have renatured fallow land by planting vegetables and keeping
chickens. And for goodwill they share the eggs of the chickens always at the weekends as a give-away to poor people in Bushwick. What an amazing City!
I saw an report about Bushwick in german tv and was fascinated.
What a town & how insteresting people – WOW!
The report showed much about the city and the history, but specially a quick view over the artists & musicans made me smile. What a great positive potential..amazing!
I heared about Rafael Fuchs the art photograph [http://www.fuchs.us.com/] and was impressed. A very interesting artist! Full of phantasy and innovative ideas.
Do you live in NY and did you hear about the fantastic Roberta´s? [http://www.robertaspizza.com/ ]

Do you like new music, cold drinks & pleasant conversations?
Meet nice people at the „Bushwick Open Studios“!
There a more then 500 artists who open their lofts and studios for a great join in.
Some of the citizens are afraid that the rents will go up when the first gallery owners are moving in.
And the investors will turn the warehouses into expensive loft apartments.
It won´t take much time…
