Gran Eléctrica, Usagi, and Pioneer Works: Bjarke Ingels’ New York

By Whitewaller

April 30, 2019

All this week in preparation for Frieze New York, we’re hearing from leading design, art, culture, and lifestyle experts on how they enjoy New York.

“My studio, and my home, is in DUMBO, so I’m very much there. My everyday kind of place in the summer is the courtyard of Gran Eléctrica. It’s this beautiful oasis with walls all the way around and trees, and when you look up, you realize you’re sitting under the Brooklyn Bridge. Then, Usagi—this small gallery/bookstore/gift store/Japanese matcha place that looks like a little Tokyo Embassy in DUMBO. Great little lunch space. And for art, beyond anything, it’s Pioneer Works in Red Hook. I’m good friends with Dustin [Yellin], so I end up there quite a bit, especially on Sundays. Again, it’s an oasis with a garden. It’s an incredible—it looks almost like a fantasy place.”
