This item was brought to my attention by the immensely talented folks at Greenpoint’s very own Clay Space. Starting today they, along with a number of other Brooklyn artists and performers, will be strutting their stuff at Homemade: Brooklyn; “a weekend long pop-up event”. Sponsored by The Shiny Squirrel, free films, performances, workshops and music are also promised. Check it out!
June 25 – 27, 2010; 11:00 a.m. – “late”
439 Metropolitan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11211
In closing, it should be noted that this is part of Williamsburg Walks which commences tomorrow and runs through Sunday! You can get the full rundown about this year’s Williamsburg Walks (including a list of activities) by clicking here.
P.S.: I feel compelled to give people a warning/caveat about Metropolitan Green. Last weekend I attempted to patronize their facilities.
I checked the hours this “comfort station” was purported to be open. It looked encouraging enough. But alas it was not to be.
As of the time I visited (10:21 a.m.) It was locked. My advice: be prepared to contend with the “Comfort Station” at McCarren or do what I do. Take your “business” to the W.E. Sheridan Playground instead.
