Straddling the iconic Bushwick Brooklyn and tree lined Ridgewood Queens neighborhoods; The Strand is surrounded by Old-World charm and an unparalleled artsy ethos. On the one hand, there’s historic Ridgewood, Queens, with its 10 national historic districts, four city landmark districts, and multitudes of Romanesque Revival row houses. On the other hand, is trendsetting Bushwick. A vibrant and authentic NYC residential community rests adjacent to what once was one of NYC’s industrial hubs. Today, the warehouses still stand, however this section of Brooklyn has become the go-to neighborhood where up-and-coming NYC chefs, designers, creators and artists turn to when they’re looking to launch something new, exciting and real!
