New York Times entdeckt „Clubsterben“

Berlin hat’s mal wieder in die New York Times geschafft. Der Grund: die Griessmühle. Ein Auszug: „Berlin is known for its freewheeling club scene, but in the last decade, that culture has come under increasing pressure from real estate investors and infrastructure projects. The situation is complicated by an acute housing shortage, and the city’s dramatic economic growth. (…) According to the Club Commission, a group dedicated to promoting and protecting Berlin’s night life, about 100 clubs have closed over the past decade, and about 25 venues are currently under threat. There’s even a German word for it, ‚clubsterben‘ or ‚club dying‘  that has entered the mainstream lexicon.
