Brooklyn Based interviews influential scenester Jeff Stark, the curator of the ten-year-old Nonsense NYC newsletter — the place to turn if you’re looking for a party in a warehouse, loft, or abandoned subway tunnel instead of at a bar or restaurant. Stark explains why, exactly, creative nightlife is disappearing in the city: “The mayor, real estate interests, and the established clubs and bars long ago pushed the underground to the further reaches of Brooklyn. Now, police, fire, and sometimes even religious groups have decided that they are going to make sure that it will not be sustained in those neighborhoods either.” But there’s good news: “The thing that I think has really changed more than anything else is that the food events have become really serious and big. And I think it’s really exciting.”
