The Williamsburg Wine Bash – a fundraiser to help turn a closed local firehouse into a community and cultural center
About The Firehouse
The Firehouse team has been raising money to convert the historic engine house on Wythe Ave and N8th St into a community a cultural center which is in part to be a Williamsburg version of the 92nd St Y. The first of its kind in North Brooklyn, this hub will provide a unique space dedicated for innovative arts programming, topical forums and community space. With Vice Media as one of our programming partners, it will also be home to People’s Firehouse Inc and NAG, two significant neighborhood social justice organization that offer resident advocacy and services.
