Own Your Own Masonic Temple!


Here’s a cool listing for you: The Ridgewood Masonic Temple in Bushwick is currently for sale. Located on a 50-by-125-foot lot, the abandoned site of decades of secret rituals is right on Bushwick Avenue, a block from the J and Z trains. And it will only cost you $1 million! It was used most recently as a set piece for the movie The Other Guys, out next month. It’s also been used as a concert venue, a Colleague Who Is Cooler Than Your DI Editors tells us. She recently attended a Sleigh Bells concert there. Colleague Who Is Cooler Than Your DI Editors also informs us that Sleigh Bells is kinda overhyped (most of Alexis Krauss’s live vocals seemed to be prerecorded), but the Masonic Temple itself is not: It’s pretty rad.
