Culture on the Cheap
Studio B: Where The Fun Never Stops
My commenters are a very intelligent lot. Hence why I will open this post with a missive from addrobinson:
From everything I know about Studio B, other than the rooftop garden, none of this is new, the noise, the over capacity etcâ€¦. So what occurred recently that caused you to take such a strong stance against them?
Let’s imagine for a moment that I, a citizen, invited 140+ of my best friends to party on my rooftop (and I have a nice one, btw). Someone would call the cops and I’d be cited and/or thrown in jail.
In other words, it’s a matter of inequality. Studio B, despite having no permission to host events on their roof does so anyway. Nothing happens.
They have a Stop Work Order which they have not only seen fit to violate but have also removed from their front door. Once again, nothing happens.
Here is the garbage this establishment generates. Would you want to look at this 2-3 times a week? I didn’t think so. Will they get in trouble for this? Probably not.
At what point will the owners of this property, WS Delancey Realty LLC, be held accountable for their actions? Will it be today? They do, after all, have a hearing regarding their first (and undoubtedly not last) violation of their Certificate of Occupancy on this, Cinco de Mayo.
In closing here is a little footage I shot of this establishment yesterday afternoon. Note that the music they are playing is loud enough to be picked up by my dinky little digital camera from across the street.
