Queens Exodus

Robert Prichard, longtime LES nightlife and theater man, is betting New York's new art center will be in Queens. So, he's opening a 5,000 sq ft venue in LIC this summer: "Adopting the slogan 'Downtown Has Moved to Queens,' the former Lower East Side stalwart is partnering with developer Michael Waldman to open what he called a “rock ’n’ roll supper club, similar to a Bowery Ballroom or a Mercury Lounge with a restaurant...After the nighttime entertainment ends at 4 a.m., the proprietors intend to open back up just three hours later for breakfast."
