This Weekend: Bushwick Block Party

Bushwick Block Party

Is it too early to start thinking about the weekend? From Brooklyn Paper:
The blocks around the Morgan L station will erupt in a music-art-and-pizza-filled blowout on July 28, say event organizers who will shut down Moore Street between Bogart and White streets to bring out the seemingly abandoned neighborhood’s art-loving denizens for a not-so-old-fashioned block party.

“When we first opened here, there was nothing around,” said Anthony Falco, the director of mobile operations for Roberta’s Pizza, which is the main sponsor of the event. “It’s been great to watch the whole area grow, and this is a celebration of that.”

And though closing down a street to party is standard Brooklyn fare, this isn’t a standard Brooklyn street. Moore Street has, in many ways, become a social hub for the young people who have flocked to the area for cheap live-work spaces […]

This is the third year of the Bushwick Block Party and organizers are optimistic it will be the biggest yet, with rocker Andrew WK as the celebrity draw. Other local performers include Heems, Tournament and Wild Yaks.

Phillip Gilmour, owner of Momo Sushi Shack, said the block party helps to showcase what makes Bushwick unique among New York City neighborhoods.

“It’s a younger and more eclectic neighborhood,” said Gilmour. “There are all these young artist people out here. It seems desolate, but it’s not.”
