Barcade Goes Bump in the Night

Turns out that the two-square-block chunk of Williamsburg that's home to Barcade was built on something called the Old Methodist Burying Ground. Sorry, Paranormal State fans: The bodies in the cemetery were apparently moved in 1856, whereupon the area was made into a park called Freemans Burying Ground, because back then people didnt mind associating their leisure spaces with decaying corpses.
