Editor’s Note: Ten years ago, City Limits did an in-depth report on the trends shaping Bushwick. A decade later, and with a major rezoning looming, it’s time for another look. So City Limits’ reporting team, including our photographer Adi Talwar, spent the month of July reporting in Bushwick. The stories we’re producing can be read here. But Talwar’s photos tell their own story below.
