Monster Island's Last Hurrah

Throwing a final block party before closing its doors

Down the waterfront, the condo complex The Edge advertises "hardcore luxury." "I always feel like it's one of our parents appropriating the terminology but never quite using it correctly," Nelson says. But the gentrification is nearly complete in a stretch where wild canine packs roamed 25 years ago; just blocks away from Monster Island and steps from the new East River Ferry is one of The Edge's newest charms, the appropriately hardcore pet supply store and doggy day care center Eco Dog. Hipster puppies, ahoy.

The Monster Island Block Party takes place September 10
