Galapagos Art Space, the Williamsburg arts haven that is rehabbing an
old stables for a move to DUMBO, lost almost $300,000 worth of security
devices that were supposed to keep its future home protected, cops said.
Thieves entered the arts and performance space, at the corner of Main
and Water streets, through a hole under the front door after 6 pm on
Jan. 15. When workers returned the next morning, they found that the
surveillance system, valued at over $270,000 was missing.
Also gone was high-end computer equipment worth more than $32,000.

The future home of the innovative art space is undergoing an
environmentally friendly renovation. Eventually, natural gas will power
the spotlights, the sound system and the rest of the electrical
appliances in the building and recycled rainwater will flush through the
buildings toilets and flow through its sinks..
The roof itself will be transformed into an urban meadow with trees,
local grasses and flowers.
