New Art Spaces Open On Cobble Hill’s Bergen Street

January 25, 2013

Two cultural spaces are opening at 47 Bergen Street in Cobble Hill, next door to the Invisible Dog gallery: Recession Art, an affordable art gallery and store; and the Beam Center, a non-profit learning and youth arts development organization. Both organizations have held shows and events in the Invisible Dog space before, and will collaborate there again in the coming months.

Brownstoner reports that this is the first permanent location in Brooklyn for both organizations. The “Grand Re-Opening” of Recession Art is scheduled for March 9, with regular hours 1-7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday. (Photo: Brownstoner)

Boerum Hill Townhouse Sells In One Day

October 22, 2012

A classic Boerum Hill townhouse at 179 Bergen Street was on the market for only one day before entering contract, after being listed by Corcoran on September 8 for $2,950,000. By October 5, Brownstoner reports it was in the midst of changing hands after a September 9 sale. It last sold in 2009 for $2,150,000.

The listing describes it as a “lovely two family townhouse. Owner’s upper triplex and garden level floor-through. Restored details throughout include original molding and plaster medallions, pocket doors and wood burning fireplaces with marble mantles. Located on a quaint, tree-lined street. The configuration makes for an easy conversion to a one family home. The building has mechanical and structural upgrades from top to bottom.” (Photo: Corcoran)

Denim Retailer Rivet Expands From Park Slope To Boerum Hill At Smith & Bergen

August 14, 2012

Boerum Hill has gotten its own outpost of Park Slope denim destination Rivet, which has opened its new store in a two-room space at 115 Smith Street at the corner of Bergen. The hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Racked reported earlier this month that the vibe is all-American, with exposed brick walls and vintage design objects. Jeans for men and women hang on racks, and are also stored in a shelving unit made up of wooden boxes and accessible by ladder, like a denim library.

The new store carries most of the same labels as the 7th Avenue location: J.Brand, AG, American Vintage, Ben Sherman and LA Made. But, as Racked points out, because it’s twice as big, there’s space for more jewelry (including geometric pieces from In God We Trust) and shoes, leather goods, bags, candles and antiques.

Its Park Slope stores are at 103 7th Ave. and 203 Garfield Place (as Warp and Weft).
