Culture on the Cheap
Sith in the Stuy
I was once of the opinion that Williamsburg and Greenpoint had a monopoly when it comes to aesthetically bankrupt, oppressive and soul-crushing architecture. Then I walked down Lafayette street in Bedford-Stuyvesant and learned how very wrong I was.
For the last week I couldn’t shake the feeling that this building reminded me of something. Something very, very familiar. Call it a “tremor in the Force” if you will. When I awoke this morning it finally came to me.
This is no mere piece of schlockitecture, it’s the Dark Side Mews! Don’t believe me? Just look what Darth has done to the house across the street.
