Brooklyn, NY 11231
Village Voice's Description
This appropriately named outdoor space--formerly the BKLYN Yard, formerly The Yard--sits on the Gowanus Canal, but jacks the industrial bent of the neighborhood for a more floral take. Sure, there are factories and a water tower looming over the waterside lot. But the overgrown, wooded space makes for an attractive place to catch a beat-heavy vinyl set. The Mister Sunday dance parties have long been a favorite of the Grove’s more exuberant pilgrims, weather-permitting, and highlighted that a vacant industrial lot can still bounce with an abundance of spirit--nothing says dance party like cast stretches of concrete. The filth of the superfunded Gowanus Canal might turn some off for its pollution, but even the stroller crowds from nearby Clinton Hill and Park Slope have even been known to bring the little ones down to the Grove for one of its parties, film screenings, or some live comedy. --Dale Eisinger
Tips from foursquare
Mister Sundays + killer tacos!
Killer DJ outdoors. It feels like a European backyard party (in only the best ways).
Bathroom line is 3 nautical miles long. Pee under someones puppy and blame it on them.
This is a great place to run into all the people you're sleeping with
