It is well known that Bushwick has a bad reputation due to its dark history; it is said that Bushwick still brings up memories of the riots that took place in the summer of 1977. This rioting is said to be the worst since the draft riots of the Civil War, and many took part in the looting and burning of the area.
A racial transition took place in Bushwick in the early 1970s when low-income African Americans and Hispanics moved into the neighborhood, and the Italian and German families moved away. During the riot, the windows of retail stores were broken, and goods were stolen. The looting continued into the next day until the police got the situation under control. There were 890 arrests from the riots, most of them in Bushwick. Another blaze took place a few days later, destroying an abandoned knitting mill, and continuing to destroy an addition 30 buildings in Bushwick.
Bushwick also has a reputation for its drugs, crime, and gang-related activity.
