Loft-like roomy, contemporary and deluxe, wood-floors, meeting / dining / performance-space.
Highly recommended. The space is as advertised and goes even beyond that. It has a small stage, equipment for live streaming a good sound system etc. But the most important thing is, it has Melissa! Melissa made sure we had the best possible service. She cares deeply about satisfying her...

Brooklyn Industrial Studio – 14 Skylights – Drive in Space

Spacious & Peaceful Studio/Loft Space Centrally Located with Excellent Lighting
