Bushwick Savings Bank was founded in 1868, but appears to have struggled in its early years. Its original incorporators included William Wall, Samuel Meeker, Henry Eckert, and Frederick Kalbfleish. In 1873, the bank reopened in some fashion, with Nicholas Wyckoff listed as the first depositor. Joseph Liebmann was the president of the bank at that time, although the "original incorporators" from 1868 were listed as well. At this time, the bank was located at Broadway and Myrtle Avenue.
R. (Richard) Thomas Short was active in Brooklyn and Manhattan real estate.

Bushwick Central Methodist Episcopal Church (originally Bushwick Avenue M.E. Church, now Bushwick United M.E. Church) is a Romanesque Revival style brick and terra cotta church built in 1887, designed by George W. Kramer. Contructed in 1901, the existing structure replaced an earlier frame church that was constructed in 1887 (W. J. Browne, architect). DOB records indicate that the existing structure is an alteration, however the former church was completely replaced.
