A daring Times reporter infiltrated the bedbug-ridden, crime-infested, lame-party-throwing McKibbin lofts in Bushwick. Was it dirty and gross like you might expect? Oh yes, very very much so. Also, saddest thing ever, there was a 61-year-old living there, with his wife. Unironically. Because it's the cheapest place in town. Where to begin? With the urine, I guess:
248 McKibbin, the almost certainly filthy hipster-warehouse living space that was once infested with bedbugs and also fought the police, posted a Myspace rant against their neighbors, 255 McKibbin, chiefly concerning the quality of their parties. An exerpt from "RANT: Big parties at 255 McKibbin" follows.
We declare the infamous hipster loft building at 255 McKibbin Street to be an official no-go zone. Over on the building's MySpace—the building has a MySpace!—the tales of bedbug woe throughout the building are pouring in. It is time to fully quarantine the area. Put up the barbed wire and the guard towers!
BEDBUGS are a MAJOR ISSUE!!! [248 McKibbin MySpace]
