“1520 Sedgwick is in danger of losing its affordable status, as its owner prepares to sell the building to wealthy speculators whose only hope of profiting on the building hinges on hiking the rent rolls,” Schumer said. “That is why it is essential that the owner negotiate a reasonable, affordable deal with the tenants and their representatives to preserve affordability in this special place for the long haul.”
The building has been determined to be eligible for listing on the national and state register of historic sites, but, for many residents, 1520 Sedgwick has just been a safe and quiet place to raise a family in the shadow of the Washington Bridge. [AMNY – Read More]

“The news about Syntax, yesterday afternoon, left us shocked & confused. By no means are we happy about the loss. In many ways they helped our business, as they were a leader in the industry. We wish everyone at Syntax the best in new endeavors. They’re a great bunch of people that were truly passionate about the industry. They will be sorely missed by many.
Our biggest worry is where this leaves the US vinyl market. We realize how many shops are dependent on Syntax for weekly product. Without that option there, shops will be without stock & forced to close down. This leaves us without an industry to cater to.
As some of you may or may not know, Sector Media is a newer distribution company. We’re comprised of people that have worked for Watts & Syntax. Up until now, our primary focus has been DnB, Dubstep, & Breaks. Because of our concern for the industry’s supply & demand, yesterday evening we decided on an immediate expansion! We hope to be a new one stop alternative to the vinyl industry. Honestly, we don’t think these closings are because vinyl is dead, it’s because the business model has changed! We’ve merely downsized & now need to have real expectations. Vinyl will never be was it was, but it’s definitely not dead. The fact that we and several other companies are alive & doing well are proof of this.
We’ll begin our multi genre release lists in the next couple of weeks. Please let us know labels & artists that are essential to your business. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.”
“When Steve Trimboli opened his performance venue Goodbye Blue Monday — the first of its kind in Bushwick — he enticed young people far and wide to make the trip out to perform and fraternize in the unique space.
“Steve is the pied piper of Bushwick,” said Drew Grant, who bartends at Goodbye Blue Monday. “He provides the music, and they come. He’s shaped the area by helping the community develop without exclusivity in clientele.” [Read More]

“Last month, musicians of all stripes were dismayed to learn that the Apartment may soon be making its curtain call. On Dec. 5, Mr. Leviton alarmed his friends and fans with a panicky e-mail message: Due to emergency/tragedy crazy/horrible problems with our landlord, Leah and I have decided it would be best for us if we could move somewhere else immediately.
Those problems appear to have nothing to do with, you know, the racket.
According to Mr. Levitons account of what happened, Luz Rodriguez, the landlord, told them in person on Nov. 30 that she planned to raise the rent to $1,500 from $1,350, adding that the increase would take effect the next day.” [Read More]
