Brooklyn Vegan posted news that BKLYN Yard, the Gowanus space that’s hosted a fantastic variety of outdoor events over the past few years, is closing, a victim of a landlord tearing up the lease.
In a letter to supporters, MeanRed Productions writes, “Our landlord of the past four years, who used to share our vision for BKLYN Yard, notified us on Tuesday May 1st, that they would no longer honor our lease which had been in place since early this year. They chose not to give us an opportunity to renegotiate, and requested that we take what we have built, and terminate all of our confirmed plans and schedule for BKLYN Yard this summer.”
