The main common space is around 500 sq ft, with 15ft ceilings, and two large industrial south-facing windows that illuminate the space. Located in an old factory, the loft has a genial balance of white walls, wood textures and brick, and has a comfortable bohemian vibe. Guests have access to the common space, kitchen, bathroom, a parking lot in the back of the building, and a spacious decked rooftop with views of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. A notable feature that makes the roof unique are the coops of trained pigeons that dot the neighboring roofs - sometimes you can catch the neighbors corralling the pigeons with flags. The roof is equipped with working electrical outlets, but you need to bring your own extension cables. Street parking is available and load in is a breeze. The Loft is located on the first floor of the building. Lighting - I've installed natural, dimmable lighting throughout, as well as limited dimmable gallery lighting. Ideal use of the space: Photoshoots and video shoots. Neighborhood: Latina neighborhood quickly becoming the vanguard of the Bushwick artist and young professional migration, a mix of old and new Bushwick. Maria Hernandez Park within walking distance, as well as coffee shops, restaurants, and street art. There are electrical appliance shops, a few groceries, and a hardware store all 2 minutes away in case you need any last minute or spur of the moment supplies for your production. I am a musician and I live in the loft. I often use the space to host musicians' parties, video shoots and photoshoots. When I'm not using the loft to create extra value via peer space, I utilize it as a resource for my creative community.
• Clean everything up and leave it the way you came. • Food and beverages are permitted as long as care is taken to avoid spills. • It's appreciated but not required for models/staff to have separate shoes for indoor/outdoor (when not used as a photo space, the loft is a no-shoes space). • No smoking indoors. • All rentals include setup and cleanup time. Please inquire for details about staffing. • Furniture can only be moved by the host upon request. • Trash must be taken out at the end of your booking, and placed in the outdoor dumpster located in the parking lot. • Sorry, parking lot access for load in is unavailable at this time, but load in through the front door is easy.
Amazing space to create, lots of natural lighting. Most of all, the place had a coziness to it. Looking forward to seeing the final product of what we shot at this location.
Benny was an excellent host! I came 10-15 min early and he let me in and showed me around. My photographer kept praising the lighting and the character of the space, we both really liked it. Thank you for everything!
It was an absolute pleasure to film at this space. Benny was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. He was flexible and helpful. The space is a great spot for filming due to the natural light and brick walls. We were very comfortable.
