Everyone is buzzing today about the new Union Hall which will be opening on Seventh Street between Second and Third Avenues
, and both Brooklyn Vegan
had details as well as a statement from Union Hall's owner. The Food of the Future blog first reported news of the new venue nearly two months ago
, noting that "given the problems that i've heard about with their current location - i.e. noise complaints, it makes sense to open something in a location where noise is not an issue." Apparently, Union Hall is planning to keep music programming at the Union Street venue
too, however. The new Union Hall-operated venue is in the same area as the Brooklyn Artists Gym
and the brand new Gowanus Studio Space
. Combine this will all the activity that Gabby Warshawer of Brownstoner lists out today in the Third Street Corridor, which looks quite impressive when placed on a map
, and one senses much action starting to happen in this once desolate area.
