Beloved venue, restaurant and bar, Brooklyn Fire Proof East, has shuttered its doors thanks to, let’s face it, a shitty location. Situated in the Bermuda Triangle of Bushwick at Ingraham Street and Porter Avenue, Brooklyn Fire Proof never really had a prayer–plus it tacked the word “East” onto its name, adding to the confusion of its navigability.
It’s unclear as to whether Brooklyn Fire Proof Stages, across the street from the bar/restaurant, will remain open since they’re used by entities like the Food Network to film TV shows, but, as for Brooklyn Fire Proof itself, well, it may be fire proof, but sadly not fail-proof. Perhaps, in the future, when the Triangle is more heavily infiltrated by other overpriced food and drink facilities, Brooklyn Fire Proof will be vindicated for blazing the trail of the geographical path less traveled.
