FREE Documentary Screening at India Street

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

There are two types of rats in New York City'”the ones that scurry around the subway tracks and the ones that fly and carry fungal diseases in their feces. Pigeons, on the other hand, are lovely birds that travel in flocks and then return to their owners on rooftops throughout the boroughs. Tonight, you can see a free documentary about some Brooklyn pigeon keepers, as part of the India Street Mural Project. The project launched in May when local artists painted murals on a soon-to-be demolished building in Greenpoint. The screening also includes a documentary about factories in New York, because the converted warehouses in area made stuff like belts and fireworks before they were lofts. Both documentaries are getting projected onto the murals, and the screening is completely FREE.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
