Why Did Studio B Close?

The very day the Public Safety Committee decided that Studio B did not merit a recommendation for a Cabaret license, the Department of Buildings disapproved their Place of Assembly application.
For both floors.
UPDATE: Citizen Skein (who was present at last week’s meeting) explains it all for us! (Check the comments). ALSO— here is my buddy Neighborhood Threat’s take on the whole brouhaha. Do give it a read.
*The difference is amazing. Ken the City Councilman berates safety violations but Ken the Lobbyist justifies them! No wonder Greenpoint is so fucked up. Thanks Mr. Fisher!
