The history behind this building is, unfortunately, a mystery to me.

Around 2011, I went into this building a few times. Located behind the Kellogg diner in Williamsburg, this former factory site sat vacant for several years before being converted to (you guessed it) apartments.

At the time, there was very little to see inside. No evidence of the building’s past life, only scribbles on the walls. Some of the graffiti came from talented artists, while the rest was likely done by squatters.

The proximity of the building to transit police station below ground is probably the only thing that prevented this building from becoming a a mecca for graffiti and illegal parties.

If you know anything about the history of this building, by all means comment below.
