Classroom, TV Wall, Clock Stairway, Hall of Lamps
This is a set of seven rooms, totaling 1880 square feet, available for photo and film shoots, as well as rehearsals and small events.
The Classroom itself measures roughly 30 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 8 feet high.
The Classroom was most likely formerly used as a Sunday School classroom, as its located underneath a church. On one wall is a chalkboard, always stocked with new white and colored chalk and an eraser. Two of the walls are beautifully aged with revealed bricks peeking out beneath a retro blue paint job. The floor is combination of black tiles and basement concrete. The ceiling is composed of tiled tin and exposed pipes. There's a door leading to the backyard. We've outfitted the Classroom with 12 school desks, a teacher's desk with a globe, and a shelf with school books.
Four windows let in a significant amount of daylight. Blackout curtains are available, if desired. Six fluorescent ceiling lights fill the room with bright light.
The Back Hall features our TV Wall at one end of it.
At the end of the hall is our Clock Staircase, lined from bottom to top with 46 clocks while paper umbrellas hang from the ceiling.
Branching off the hall is the Safe Room. As an add-on, the safe room can be filled with money like you see in the photo. By default, it comes with the box safe and empty shelves only.
Across from the Safe Room is Under The Stairs. This closet has a claustrophobic cellar-esque look.
The Backyard is full of outdoor installations like our antique furnaces, antique furniture, and bathtub. String lights add beauty and mood after sunset. Our new wooden fence serves as a beautiful backdrop.
The Hall of Lamps is a forest of floor lamps, which you can arrange or hide as you see fit. Numerous ceiling lamps hang above, controlled by a dimmer. Furnishings include a love seat and a bed that can glow green underneath. Turkish rugs hang from the walls.
Take note that the Hall of Lamps is not always a complete private space. Sometimes neighboring renters from the adjacent space may pass nearby on their way to the bathroom or exit. Sometimes the building's custodian will be traveling through the other end of the hall. The other three spaces are fully private (the Classroom, Back Hall, and Backyard).
Likewise, take note that at times, you will share your bathroom with neighboring renters.
The TV wall is made of 21 TVs. All of the TVs can feature your custom video or still image. This image is transmitted via our laptop, which is connected to our wifi network. If you have no image in mind, the TVs can display static.
The Classroom is equipped with a 15,000 BTU Frigidaire window air conditioner to keep you cool in the summer and a 10000W Dr. Heater to keep you cozy all winter.
The Clock Stairway, Back Hall, and Hall of Lamps are equipped with a total of 17 Phillips Hue bulbs, which can be modified to any color or warm or cool white light, along with a range of brightness levels.
Each of the four rooms, including the backyard, is equipped with three prong 110V electrical outlets powered by 20 amp circuits.
The space is equipped with a powerful WIFI network.
Depending on the availability of our staff, renters are able to be in the space 24 hours, 7 days a week, with the exception of Sundays, 9am to 3:30pm, when we are closed.
This is located on Bushwick Avenue near the Halsey J and Gates J stations, and a 12 minute walk from the Myrtle Wyckoff L station.

Classic Greenpoint Artist Loft
We are a full-service daylight photo studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The stunning direct light provided by southwest exposure, paired with tall white ceilings, and a calm neighborhood provides the perfect environment for creative productions. The lofty studio vibes are great for easy set building and the classic New York photo studio experience. Look out the window at the East River and the Manhattan skyline!
The studio is a modest 2000 sq ft, but we think big picture (pun intended). The studio was built by a working photographer who is "very particular" about things. The studio has been meticulously assembled with love. We have considered the comfort of the client, model, and photographer all in an effort to create an ideal photoshoot environment.
There is one large room 22ftx60ft, and smaller room 22ftx15ft that are both included in the rental. Right now we have the smaller room set up as styling/MUA/chill out space with sofa and chairs. You can use the furniture or move to your needs.
In the main room/studio area the ceiling height is 15ft on one side and 12ft on the other. There are 5 large windows that face west in the main room.
The photo studio also has light diffusing curtains for shaping of natural light.
4 V-Flats, 6 c-stands, sandbags, 2 steamer, rolling racks, 50 clothes hangers, a rolling desk, and 4 folding tables are included in rental cost.
There is a large freight elevator with street level loading, as well as a passenger elevator.
BYO seamless paper and set. We often have some leftover seamless you can use for no charge, just ask ahead of time what colors are available. Our studio manager can also help direct you where to get catering, gear rental, props, etc. We are really chill so just ask us anything.
COI is required to rent the space.
