As The Burning Bush reported about a week ago, Wreck Room had its final sendoff from Miley Cyrus, who lovingly sang “Wrecking Ball” to honor its memory. It wasn’t until now that Lenny Badapple, the bar’s owner, confessed to us what the Wreck Room is going to be transformed into: A portal into suburbia.
It’s only natural, after all, that Badapple would concede to allowing the portal to exist. Since gentrification on steroids has already manifested so beautifully in Williamsburg, the next logical progression is bringing suburbia right to Bushwick. Once again, we do everything twice as balls out as the Wburg set.
Badapple commented to The Burning Bush, “There’s no point in just putting a day care or like an American Apparel or whatever in Wreck Room’s place. If I’m gonna fuckin’ lose my bar to gentrification, I’m gonna do it all the way, man. All the fuckin’ way. This is what they wanted, so this is what they’re getting.” The landlords of the portal are charging $300 per entry. But just think of the value with that primo access to all your standard generic outlet malls.
