Red October Redux


Map by Anna Frolova  

The Red October micronabe is Moscow’s own Île de la Cité—a real island right in the center of the city, steps from the Kremlin. Among other unique qualities, it’s the capital’s only piece of privately owned land (Moscow land, as opposed to buildings, can only be leased). Its main tenant, a massive czarist-era chocolate factory, kept chugging all the way through the Soviet years; these days, however, its very New Yorky brick warehouses are home to Moscow’s liveliest art and media cluster.
