BAM announced on its blog yesterday that it would soon open a satellite location in Manhattan; it would, of course, be called MAM, “tentatively located on the Highline ‘UltraNorth’—west of Madison Square Garden overlooking the scenic train yards between West 30th and 33rd Streets.”
Finally, after 150 years… BAM has decided to export its elusive cultural cachet to the island to its west. Manhattan dwellers can more easily access the cutting edge culture they’ve flocked across the East River to see.
Not to be left out, Queens and Brooklyn residents were promised easy access to MAM by riding the MAMbus, which would make eight stops “from LIC to Red Hook and hotspots between.”
