Description

Village Voice's Description

Eight or so years ago this Prohibition-era cop bar was charmingly reborn and redecorated by manager Donald O'Finn and friends with a mass of thrift-store tchotchkes, books stuck into built-in shelves, and televisions screening O'Finn's videos (reformatted old film and TV clips). In addition to sponsoring its own in-house literary magazine and providing a space for community activist groups like Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, Freddy's hosts some of the city's most original readings and performances: Sing and Win a Ham, and the much praised Cringe Reading Night of teenage diary excerpts. The future of this neighborhood treasure is uncertain, as it lies, according to O'Finn, "in the footprint" of Bruce Ratner's megalomaniac Atlantic Yards development.
