BBurg news — Galapagos moving

posted at 13:52 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

Holy shit! moving to DUMBO… and I had to read it in the NYTimes :(

I haven’t been inside Galapagos for years. But this is still big news to me as it represents what I consider the ‘old days’ of Williamsburg.

Galapagos grew directly out of the roving rave/art/performance warehouse parties of Williamsburg’s glory years as an artists’ bastion in the early to mid 90s. It was started by Robert Elmes to be a legit version of Mustard, which was an illegal art/exhibition space that he helped run out the Old Dutch Mustard factory on Metropolitan Ave. Mustard itself grew out of a huge warehouse art party/rave at the factory called Organism.

What is Galapagos going to do without its moat? I hope there are plans for a new moat. permanent link to this post
