What is "The Compound"?

A Brooklyn-based social networking group of artists, local businesses, and activists called theCOMPOUNDbrooklyn. Every month, they get together in their enormous Atlantic Loft's back yard to raise funds for good causes, raise awareness of important social issues, and build a stronger community. Their favorite tag line is "Brooklynites united around a single gazebo with the aim to save the world, one party at a time."
