The magnificent industrial scenery at Building #269 (The Agger Warehouse), tucked away inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard, set the stage for a truly unforgettable night for our second Lost Lectures NY.
We had over 700 people join us for this one-night underground lecture series, which featured: journalist Jon Ronson; indie filmmaker Josephine Decker; urban explorer Steve Duncan; busker–turned–street activist Andrew Kalleen; contemporary artist Diana Al-Hadid; poet, artist, and novelist Tao Lin; and Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead.
We’d like to give special thanks to all of the speakers who shared their stories and ideas. We’d also like to thank our awesome partners: Brooklyn Brewery, who lovingly provided beer for the entire event; ZICO Coconut Water, who kept us hydrated all evening; Rekorderlig Cider, for the tasty beverages; Transportation Alternatives and Spinlister for the free bike valet; and Moleskine, who brought in graphic journalist Lori Richmond to document the evening (stay tuned for her recap soon!)
Thank you to ATD Productions, who gave us light and sound, and DevilBunny Events for all your help with the event. And thanks to our amazing food vendors, Zia Green Chile Company and Butter and Scotch, for providing tasty treats.
Thank you to everyone who came and helped make the night very memorable.
