55 Chrystie in the Lower East Side/Chinatown is the premier multifunctional production, event, and meeting venue. This charming boutique building was formerly home and recording studio to the Beastie Boys in their early career. Our 4,850 square foot daylight studio features 10 windows and 3 skylights flooding the space with natural light and fresh air. It has a private 615 square foot outdoor terrace, a rare amenity in the city. The space is column-free with 10-11 feet ceilings heights, an open floor plan, exposed white brick, hardwood floors and 2 private bathrooms. Temperature controlled with HVAC. Elevator building. The studio overlooks Sara Roosevelt Park adding an element of serenity and calmness from the hustle and bustle around the corner. 55 Chrystie is ideal for film shoots, photo shoots, digital content creation, art/photography exhibits, and a holding area for cast/crews. There are two rooms connected by a beautiful brick archway. The rooms may be separated by the industrial sliding glass door and both have its own private bathroom and entrance. If additional space is required, there are other studios on the floor that can be rented for check-in, breakout or storage areas. We are a short 2-minute walk from the Grand Street B/D express trains and half a block from Canal Street which has access to numerous subway lines including J/Z/6/N/R/Q/W/F.
