Is 151 Kent Avenue--the dorm-ish rental home of the killer rooftop party (see above for this weekend's fun edition) and countless episodes of hipster madness--be swept away by the upscaling of Kent Avenue? That's the last-nail-in-the-hipster-coffin rumor that's come our way via neighborhood tipster. Here's the bad news:
As the site of many wild and ungoverned parties and unregulated lofts in a mish mash resembling a contemporary version of the Old Bowery Brewery, as depicted in Gangs of New York, what is the documented fate of our building?
