On Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village, Queens. It’s more of a catering hall and event space than a dance club as far as I know. It’s been in business since I moved in to the neighborhood almost 20 years ago, although it might have changed names or ownership. I’m not really sure. It’s really rather nondescript venue from the outside and I never paid it no attention until one day I walked by with my Contax T3 and black and white film.
It is hard to describe exactly how or why, but this is clearly an instance where — in my opinion — the simple photograph seems to evoke a quite different energy than the place itself.
