I have been queried by a number of people lately about the status of the Pencil Factory Lofts (as seen above). Some of you might remember this site has been troubled this year: among other things, work was stalled back in May and a new construction company was purportedly brought in to complete it. Well, long story made short, it would appear that work has halted once again. Exactly why, I do not know. When will it resume, you ask? That’s anyone’s guess. But taking into account what I found at their former sales office this afternoon I’d hazard to say the prognosis isn’t looking very good.

A Greenpoint Public Service Announcement: More About The Adonis Lounge

December 27, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

adonisloungeTHUMBSome of you might recall ten days ago I shared the good news about the Adonis Lounge. In this post I posited the following:

If the address of this establishment, 113 Franklin Street, sounds vaguely familiar that’s because it is the location of the Production Lounge. Perhaps they have decided to diversify from hip-hop to himbos?

Well, certain events have come to pass (which, it should be noted started after I noticed a number highly unusual search query hits for this site— “Greenpoint handjob” being by far the finest) and I am pleased to announce I have an answer to the aforementioned question: yes. In fact, it appears to be a monthly affair and has been going on since (at least) November.
