When one thinks about a New York City artist's loft, what likely comes to mind is an open, expansive, and unequivocally cool space -- a space where anything is possible. The Live/Work loft buildings romanticized by artists are long gone in neighborhoods like the East Village and Soho, but if you turn your gaze across the East River to Brooklyn, on the rare occasion, the elusive Live/Work loft can be found. Art, Architecture, Performance, you name it and you can have it ALL in one place. Located in bustling Downtown Brooklyn, literally at the feet of the bridges to Manhattan is 183 Concord Street, Truly one of the last of its kind.
