Another veteran arts and performance space is Littlefield, a quirky, refurbished textile warehouse located on 635 Sackett Street in Gowanus. The idea for the space came about when an environmental engineer and chef joined forces to create “one of NYC’s premier independent live venues.”

With an eco-friendly mission and a physical spaces comprised of recycled materials, it serves as a venue for live music, art, film, theater, comedy, and dance parties. Additionally, it’s home to a state-of-the-art sound system, which makes its live events all the more thrilling.
