Knitting Factory Relocation Rumors

Meagan Brant

So you know how Brooklyn Vegan reported yesterday that the Knitting Factory's moving to the East Village? It’s true… kind of. Even though the venue is applying for a full liquor license at 504-508 E. 14th St., Gene over at Knitting Factory told me, “it’s one of the many places we’re looking at.” With their current lease at Leonard Street ending in 2009 (and their current liquor license ending in October of this year), I guess they’re finally succumbing to the reality of the move. They’ve been redefining the downtown music scene for more than two decades, so hopefully they won’t stray too far.
