The last time we checked in with the Vektor Gallery, aka the Official Gallery of Satan, they were hosting an event/performance described as "a Vectorian Mass dedicated to the 'Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.'"
That performance drew a heavy response from the FDNY here on Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B. There was a report of a fire inside the small space, according to a witness.
On Saturday, a city inspector came calling ... to "ensure compliance with the New York Building Code," etc., etc.
Here is the complaint on file with the DOB (in their all-cap style) dated March 31: FDNY HAVE FILED A NORMAL PRIORITY REFERRAL REPORTING THAT STORE AT RIGHT HAND CORNER IS BEING ILLEGALLY USED FOR RELIGIOUS ASSEMBLY.
Also this past weekend, someone left this message on the gallery's front window...
"Yuppie scum paying $3,900 to create unoriginal shit."
The gallery opened last August.
H/T Aaron Wilson!
