"Oh my", wrote the tipster who sent in this trippy video for new 20-store Bushwick mini-mall The Loom. The low production values and subliminal hipster messages (the video quickly cuts from footage of the mall's raw space to images of a green-haired man wearing a trucker hat pointing to a boombox, a girl in a short dress drinking a PBR, and a roof party) kind of leads us to believe that The Loom is just an art project cooked up in a loft off of the Morgan stop. But it is real, and according to blog BushwickBK, is set to open in early July with "a hair salon, a t-shirt retailer, a package shipping company, an arts supply store, and a coffee bar".
