Last night saw the opening of the Brooklyn Night Bazaar at 149 Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg, a stone's throw from lower Manhattan but a veritable world apart... not least for the availability of massive repurposed industrial spaces. The former warehouse was divided into sections: a marketplace that is open to the public from 5PM—1AM tonight and tomorrow, and a music venue for ticketholders only. (Food and drink are available in both parts.)
