#941: SculptureCenter

I’ve run by the side street where the SculptureCenter is located at least 10 times over the past few years without having any idea it was there.

It might be because the area surrounding it is mostly comprised of construction sites.

#835: Big Alice Brewing

Judging solely by my love for rare things, I should adore this brewery, considering finding it close to empty is probably pretty rare, at least based on the crowd there on a Sunday afternoon during perfect fall weather.

And I did like it. Read the rest of this entry »

#758: Queens Brewers Night

Queens may be the #1 place to visit in 2015, but I’m glad that so far, it doesn’t seem like Manhattanites are buying it.

#444: Flux Factory

I guess I should have known what I was getting myself (and my innocent friend) into–the mission of the Flux Factory states that it “is a non-profit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities. Flux Factory…functions as an incubation and laboratory space for the creation of artworks that are in dialogue with the physical, social, and cultural spheres of New York City.”
