Bushwickian (inhabitant of Bushwick, Brooklyn)

“Bushwickian” is the name of an inhabitant of Bushwick, in the borough of Brooklyn. The name “Bushwickian” has been cited in print since at least 1909.
An inhabitant of Bushwick is also called a “Bushwickan” (infrequent) or a “Bushwicker.”
Wikipedia: Bushwick, Brooklyn

is a lower middle class neighborhood in the northern part of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The neighborhood, formerly Brooklyn’s 18th Ward, is now part of Brooklyn Community Board 4. It is served by the NYPD’s 83rd Precinct and is represented in the New York City Council as part of Districts 34 and 37.
Bushwick is bound by Williamsburg to the west, East New York to the east, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville to the south, and Ridgewood, Queens to the north.[4] It is served by Postal Service zip codes 11207, 11221 and 11237. Bushwick was once an independent town and has undergone various territorial changes throughout its history.

The Battle of West Bushwick rages on, with Bushwick coffee shop Wyckoff Starr staking a claim for a clearly-in-Williamsburg address as part of the new — and heretofore nonexistent — neighborhood. Coney Island, watch your back. —Kelley Hoffman
