Tutu’s: Built on Indian Burial Ground?

March 28, 2014 7 1825 Local Business, News

If the stench wasn’t any indication, there’s been a lot of speculation lately about whether or not Tutu’s may be in a building that was constructed on an Indian burial ground. Apart from walking in to smell the odor of rotting cheese/multiple dead bodies, there’s also the history of the structure to consider.

Don't let the "inviting" sign fool you.

Formerly The Morgan, a bar known for its dancing and Thai food, the transition to Tutu’s seems to have come at a time when Bushwick was making its final transition to all-out whitedom. The Morgan held a certain urbanity, if you will, that was quickly negated by the construction of Tutu’s.

Eerie open doors.

If The Morgan’s fate is any indication, it seems like Tutu’s may be fated for a similar fall, as some structures are simply doomed to fail (especially when there’s a chance that they were erected on hallowed soil). No one knows for sure which Indian tribe may have formerly taken up residence at the space on 25 Bogart. All that can be said for sure is, you might want to watch your back when you leave–you may have caught they attention of a Native American spirit waiting to extract revenge for your enjoyment of brunch.

    I went to Tutu’s last weekend to dance with some friends. This week, my teeth started falling out one by one and I am itching in questionable places. I’m not joking. I think I need to go to the hospital but I’m really scared of wood hull….has anyone else experienced this directly after spending 6 hours mulling about that place?
