Bushwick, Brooklyn borders Williamsburg, but we think the “hipster” neighborhood has migrated to ’Shwick. From its photogenic graffitied streets to the nightlife ranging from drag shows to hilarious comedy events, it’s certainly an artistic and talented community. We love the area most of all for its coffee shops with dreamy backyards as well as its pizza shops.

Explore the storied relationship between booze and books at this Bushwick gem. Located in the middle of a residential block, this used bookshop opened last summer, packs an excellent selection of affordable tomes into its tiny digs and doubles as a comfy neighborhood café. During the morning, locals sip coffee ($2.50) along the back bar while leafing through the spot’s latest gets—and switch to stronger stuff like Budweiser ($3) and Bass ($4) bottles as the day wears on.
