Ridgewood is bordered by Brooklyn’s Bushwick and East Williamsburg, and once you start exploring the neighborhood, you can tell. Cheaper but with just as many artsy shops, its home borough is quickly gaining traction thanks to top New York attractions ranging from Mets baseball games at Citi Field to dance parties at MoMA PS1 Warm Up. Ridgewood itself is home to the bustling Ridgewood Market, bakeshop Buttah (which serves up some of the best cupcakes in NYC) and Deep Cuts Record Store, which took over DIY venue Silent Barn and quickly turned into one of the best record stores NYC has to offer.
