Bushwick, Brooklyn’s 260 Meserole Street: The Next Electric Circus?

260 Meserole Street

Halstead Property is exclusively marketing 260 Meserole Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn, which is attracting music and beer lovers from throughout the borough; and at least one broker is dubbing it the “Electric Circus of Bushwick.”

The 19th century warehouse has been transformed into the largest community for musicians in New York City, also featuring its largest beer hall, brokers at Halstead said.

The 72,000-square-foot, 5-story  redbrick building, built in 1858, is home to The Well, a 15,000-square-foot brewery; The Wick, an 8,000-square-foot performance space; Bushwick Supply, which sells music supplies; vacant spaces to be filled by a pizzeria and possibly a hostel or boutique hotel; and a number of music studios by Danbro Studios.
