Magick City Closes After 10 Years – Greenpointers
On January 14, Magick City hosted “closing events” to mark completion of its 10-year perform at 37 Box Street.
The area was never ever simply something– Magick City acted as numerous house bases to numerous individuals, from shared help companies to artists to those who simply wished to dance and beyond (like, method beyond). Which was all part of Rich Awn’s objective when beginning it.
In 2013, Awn and his good friend and realty partner came across the area (previously owned by Brooklyn Spice Business). It would go on to end up being that the HQ for Awn’s kombucha start-up Mombucha, a short-term house for Brooklyn Whiskers bakeshop, and an imaginative, collective environment for other business owners, companies, occasions, and start-ups. The Bushwick chapter of the group Food Not Bombs frequently utilized the kitchen area for food preparation.
Magick City likewise ended up being understood for the curation of vibes it gave the northern most location of Greenpoint. Routine occasions consisted of Weird Science, a music and art display assuring a less traditional environment than common clubs; Journey Sittin’, an immersive dance celebration; Home entertainment Tonight, a display of regional DJs; sound baths, yoga, and more (they opened as a “non-violent action area” with live protection of the 2020 election, with a subsequent socially distanced dance celebration).
Considering that the statement and its closing, Magick City’s remarks and Instagram tags have actually been flooded with memories and shared thanks to and from Awn and MC for the area they produced for many years. 10 years of paying lease in North Brooklyn is no little accomplishment.
We have yet to hear anything about what’s next for the area, however we can just hope it isn’t apartments.
