|Further Proof That I'm Totally Out of It
A NY Post rundown of galleries beyond Chelsea and Soho includes this:
Further north, in Greenpoint, you'll find the Dabora Gallery (1080 Manhattan Ave. between Eagle and Dupont streets;  609-9629). The gallery scores major Goth points with its Victorian-parlor aesthetic - low lighting, dark wood and red velvet to spare. Dabora is currently showing Christina Dallas' "Examination Rooms," an installation of childhood spaces featuring photographs, illustrations and dolls. Bring the kids, because the show's closing reception on March 24 will feature the additional talents of Marco, a magician and sleight-of-hand artist. Bring your MetroCard, too. Dabora is something of an oasis on its gritty stretch of Manhattan Avenue and, unless you live in the neighborhood, the most interesting local attraction might be the nearest subway stop.
The place is exactly one block from where I live, but I was completely unaware of it. (Well, it is on the other side of the street.) Good description of the neighborhood though…
i thought you were going to contend that you were out of touch with the art world as it had turned into something approximating an episode of romper room.
