Goodbye, For Now

Dear Neighbors: For many reasons, it's not working out. It takes too much money and time to do this, so BushwickBK is shutting down for some period of time, and possibly forever. Turns out, sadly, we were never in the pockets of The Developers (tm) or anyone else. The site and all its resources will stay up, and we will probably run occasional pieces.
