Brooklyn Academy of Music Reviews
All around entertainment May 05, 2009
A bit of everything, B.A.M. can be visited for classical music, experimental music, theater, or independent and foreign films, for the bar with live music, live comedy, and sometimes it serves as an art gallery venue.
The prices are average to more expensive depending on what type of performance you wish to see. For ex. the theater, which respected stars like Cate Blanchette has performed in, will naturally cost more.
There are also lots of free events here like the recent comedy show and art gallery I went to.
B.A.M. is near lots of train stations and buses, and a walk away from lots of great restaurants, juice bars, wine bars, cafes, and shopping areas. But it is also near lots of seemingly deserted areas esp. at night. It's the kind of neighborhood that is slowly, (or not so slowly) becoming gentrified.
Also semi-nearby is Junior's restaurant which is famous for its cheesecake. B.A.M. is near the downtown area of Brooklyn, the more commercial area.
