Hungry Radio Presents "Summerhill: A Crown Heights Story"

  • Electropositive 639 Classon Avenue Brookly, NY 11238 (map)

On Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights, restaurant owner Becca Brennan landed in the middle of a national conversation on gentrification.

After advertising a "bullet hole-ridden wall" and offering 40 oz. bottles of rose wine, Brennan was the focus of news articles and an internet backlash.

Hungry Radio producer Otis Gray shares this story of the pitfalls of gentrification via a live radio performance.

Drinks provided by Crown Heights' own Queen Hazel.

Exclusive Hungry merchandise will be available at the event with proceeds benefiting Hungry's IndieGoGo campaign to expand the show.
