Brooklyn Based recently posted a really great interview with Jeff Stark who started Nonsense NYC back in 2000. Nonsense NYC is wonderful email list which focuses on unique events and culture in New York City. It was orginally inspired by The Squid List, a San Francisco events list run by Laughing Squid.
Nonsense NYC is the email newsletter that every events, culture and nightlife publication in New York aspires to, mimics, or draws inspiration from (and we include ourselves in that mix). Each Friday installment is dense with dance parties, impromptu performances, calls for art collaborators, listings for every type of class, and a multitude of other odd and exciting happenings.
The newsletter is laid out simply in text with links, and is devoid of ads or any whiff of commercial interests. It’s the real deal, and that’s the choice of its founder, Jeff Stark, a 38-year-old artist who moved to New York in 1998, settled in Carroll Gardens, and began mailing out Nonsense in 2000. We talked to Jeff about his encyclopedic email for all that is quirky and collaborative in New York.
