Chris was a great host and got us everything we needed to be comfortable and work effectively. The space has a great old-NYC feel that we loved, and yet it still had all the space and amenities for our purposes. Great experience!
The space was absolutely perfect! Great industrial look. Good natural lighting. Was able to shoot from different angles with no problem. The outdoor space was also great and was able to get some good content there. Christopher was perfectly friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this space.
