The location was perfect for our photoshoot. All of the staff was so nice and accommodating. It is a big enough space for us to have room for HMU, wardrobe, and 2 sets, plus an area for catering. It is also in a very convenient location in the West Village. I would definitely recommend this location for photoshoots as well as for events!
