Boob-Themed Bushwick Bar Under Attack

September 2, 2014 | Rhett Jones

Bushwick has a lot of bars. When you open a new bar in Bushwick, you need something to set you apart. And so, the Boobie Trap opened on Bleeker Street earlier this month with just kind of decor that gets peoples attention. It’s covered in boobs. There are boobs everywhere. They have “color my boobs” placemats. The taps are attached to a mannequin torso. The walls and ceilings are clustered with boobs. Owner Kristen North told the Post, “It looks like the inside of my brain.”

Apparently, the neighborhood is not in love with the inside of North’s brain. Assemblywoman Maritza Davila told DNAinfo about some “changes the community would like to see made” at the boob-centric drinking establishment. Specifically, she cites alleged concerns for the children who go to a nearby elementary school.

Admirably, thus far, the Boobie Trap only covered a large neon sign that says “Fuck Off,” because boobs are nothing to be ashamed of. North plans to meet with Assemblywoman Davila soon to discuss her issues, but the bar is asking supporters to sign a petition in support of their decor. (Photo: Dedford and Bowery)
