It's a Wrap

Deep in the heart of East Williamsburg—a/k/a West Bushwick—lies the ARCHIVE (49 Bogart Street, Brooklyn,718-381-1944), a coffee joint-cum-DVD rental emporium that serves as the unofficial clubhouse for this gentrifying neighborhood's arty youngsters. Make the scene with a latte and a fresh cranberry scone, your PowerBook and iPod (though since they play Wire, MBV, and other treats, that's rather redundant), and the latest copy of some dully self-indulgent pseudo-literary journal. Or toss your pretensions to the wind and patronize the fab, free British film series (Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m., see below), curated by friendly Archive proprietor Jonathan Lang.
