We recently had the chance to check out the amazing, abandoned 5 Beekman building (you know the one); much of the interior has been shuttered since the 1940s, including the gorgeous atrium on the 9th floor. On a recent, rainy day, we took Small Black up the slow, slightly scary elevator to perform some songs up there for our Gothamist House series. Enjoy the videos, filmed by Foglight Films, below. (And stay tuned for many more photos and details on 5 Beekman, coming up next week.)
Gothamist House is our music series where we pair up bands with some of our favorite buildings around the city; previously: The Walkmen at the New York Public Library, and The Black Angels at Angel Orensanz. When possible, we will invite some readers along for the filmings, so stay tuned!
