Nothing short of amazing! The space was accessible, very unique and felt like an escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC (something to get your creative juices flowing)! Patrick was phenomenal, very knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I have now found a studio I would recommend and most definitely use time and time again.
