Next Frontier for Brooklyn Artists: Sunset Park

Several months ago I was down in Sunset Park, and driving along block after block of huge active industrial buildings I thought, "wow, I wonder if there are artists working down here?"

Well, (no) surprise, there are!

New York Magazine reported recently that Sunset Park is the next frontier for Brooklyn artists.

The area may not have the mixed residential/work appeal of Williamsburg or even Bushwick, but it does have an enormous amount of loft space and is right on the water.

In a city that is rapidly losing space for light industry to condos and other development, Sunset Park might indeed be the promised land.

Anyone out there have a studio in Sunset Park or know anyone who does??
