The short-lived Luna Lounge on Metropolitan looks like it will soon reopen as the Knitting Factory. Good news/bad news. Its too bad that Luna didn’t make it – the old Ludlow version was a bastion of the music scene way back when, and it would have been great to see that success translate over here. Knitting Factory, on the other hand, has long been a bigger (bastionier?) bastion of NY’s downtown music scene, so it will be great to see that success translate over here. Hopefully this is a sign that music and the arts can continue to thrive in Williamsburg – all signs have been pointing in the opposite direction of late.
