Frenchie, Brooklyn, NY

Frenchie has owned Frenchie's Gym, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, for 36 years. The neighborhood keeps changing, but Frenchie's not going anywhere.


There's no place like home. It's where we live, work and dream. It's our sanctuary and our refuge. We can love them or hate them. It can be just for the night or for the rest of our lives. But whoever we may be, we all have a place we call home.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.

We're always on the lookout for dwellings of all sorts. If you've come across any curious or eccentric homes, feel free to send them along.
