The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is still looking for a new home, but its old home – a warehouse at 29 Norman Avenue in Greenpoint – is apparently no longer in search of a new tenant. A creative space called A/D/O, run by BMW and sub-brand MINI, will be taking over the space, Bedford + Bowery reported. The 23,000-square-foot warehouse will become home to "co-working desk rentals, an accelerator program for startups trying to change cities through technology, a design academy, and a small MINI design studio," the report said. It will also have a restaurant (supposedly an affordable one), a public space complete with Wi-Fi and a periscope view of the skyline, plus free events and performances.
Project director Nathan Pinsley said it would be "a pipeline for future innovative ideas that could be part of the business for years to come." If you were wondering, the graffiti will be staying. As for the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, booted by a rent hike, it might be moving to 144 Greenpoint Avenue (at Manhattan Avenue). The report said one of the owners filed for a liquor license there. In the meantime, people are advised to make plans to head to the Riis Park Beach Bazaar, which will be open until the end of the summer.
