      I have lived in Bushwick for a year and in my opinion Bushwick can be broken up into three areas.  There is the small area that people refer to as east Williamsburg which is right next to Williamsburg.  Then comes an industrial type with a bunch of wharehouse type buildings. Then comes the rest which is largely the Latin American section.  This third section is mostly what Bushwick is. Latin American meaning that the people and businesses are mostly Spanish decent with only a handful on non-Spanish here and there.

      The following stops along the L train will correspond

      Montrose:  ""East Williamsburg"" section of Bushwick

      Morgan/Jefferson:  the mostly Industrial section of Bushwick

      DeKalb/MyrtleWycoff:  the Latin American section of Bushwick

      It's worth noting that a lot of landlords will try and rent you apartments near the Jefferson, DeKalb, and Myrtle stops under the location name of East Williamsburg.  They do this to get that Williamsburg name in there to make it sound better. Do not let this fool you, IT'S BUSHWICK!
