Things Get Political at the Old Dutch Mustard Building in Williamsburg

Old Mustard Two

They've been giving things away for weeks at the Old Dutch Mustard Company building in Williamsburg (which still has a big "For Sale" sign attached to it). This latest batch, which has a very Ikea look, comes with its own pre-scrawled, political graffiti against the war in Iraq and the Bush Administration. The building once housed the mustard company founded by Czech immigrants Vladimir and Elsie Kedrovich, but hasn't been used for industrial purposes for nearly 25 years. In its second life, it was one of the original Billburg loft spaces, and known for the huge parties thrown there. It's been on the market for a while, destined to sell for around $25 million and return for a third life as luxury condos. There's good detail about the building at The L Magazine.
