S&S Factory

April 13th, 2008 by

So me & S are bored to death and decide to go for a ride around town and see what's been changing on the street landscape. It seems like every time I drive around anywhere with her looking to break into something we get lucky. Tonight would be no different.

By chance we drive down an industrial street checking on an abandonment/development site we did last year. Directly across the street sits another large factory building that has no lights on. A closer look reveals a few windows broken out, and the roll down gates on the truck bays are not looking too healthy. Sure enough there's a way in, and in we go.

For the size and scale of this place, much of it was empty. The first floors were all factory, the top seemed to have artist lofts with eviction notices still on the doors. These were huge lofts. Whoever lived here surely lost out when they were kicked out.

Curiosity satisfied, we depart. Fixated though, I decide to check this place again in the morning. Perhaps the luck will hold out and access, just like your mom, will still be free.

    Hi I love your site!! I’m doing research on Art and the Brooklyn Waterfront. I’m curious if you were able to get a close up shot of the eviction notices for the artists? I look forward to hearing back!

    I think I might have something. I’ll check today.
