Shayz Lounge, the beloved bar with the corny name at 130 Franklin Street, has announced that it’s closing on January 20. It’s another victim of the insane gentrification that’s hit the neighborhood.
What was Monkeytown you ask? Monkeytown at its essense was space inside a cube (made of four large projection screens) that featured film, dining, music, and other art performances. Created by Montgomery Knott, it began in a loft space at 222 Leonard St. in 2003 and ended up making stops in cities all over the […]
