    56 Bogart St., 718-599-0800
    By now, it's a familiar New York City narrative: industry and manufacturing disappear, leaving behind hulking buildings in sometimes-troubled neighborhoods. Artists, looking for cheap rent and ample space, move in, and over time the area is transformed into a cultural hub. This metamorphosis occurred in SoHo and Chelsea; now it's happening in Bushwick. A former warehouse, 56 Bogart has commercial galleries and artists' studios. NURTUREart lives up to its name by showcasing the work of new and emerging artists, doing educational outreach and hosting Muse Fuse, a monthly salon with guest lecturers. Originally established in Philadelphia in 1986, Momenta Art specializes in emerging or underrepresented artists whose work hasn't been shown in commercial galleries. Another dozen or so commercial art spaces call the place home.
