This blog will be the evidence, chronicle-izing the doings and beings AND the undoings of the beings within the walls of 660 Grand st; an Arts compound,castle in the slums of Jersey City, nestled right in between the squalor of J.C's past and the early signs of it's gentrification . Many of you who will follow have been to 660 at a party or event, but there's more to 660 then the drunken mayhem you may think were up to. We're a band of extremophile's, coexisting in a space built by the artists that work within it. We love it here and if we ever have to leave, we hope we leave having made a good impression on this city.
Winter's here mean you have to be resilient mentally and physically or atleast be too impaired to make decisions that protect your health. Were beginning this Blog now after 7yrs on Grand st for a few reasons; to chronicle the daily fight we have to stay positive in frigid temperatures, to fill people in on what actually happens within these walls- beyond debauchery and decadence, to highlight some of our artistic endeavors and serve as a diary of our time here when so many of J.C's grassroots arts facilities are moving out or being stunted. Hopefully this sheds some light on who we are and what we do....ya never know when someone may declare you as a "public nuisance".
