  • 60 people
  • 4 hr min
  • 3000 sq/ft
This raw underground space is conveniently located in the Lower East Side/Chinatown and is the premier multifunctional production, event, and meeting venue. It is within a charming boutique building that was formerly home and recording studio to the Beastie Boys in their early career. This cellar space is a column-free open floor with 3,000 sqft and high ceilings between the two rooms that are linked by a beautiful archway. The studio features original exposed brick and is extremely versatile. 55 Chrystie is ideal for film/photo shoots, music videos, gallery shows/exhibitions, digital content creation, fashion shows, product launches, intimate gatherings and events, private creative classes, and a holding area for cast/crews. The space comes raw and you are welcome to bring your own equipment and decorations. It's in an elevator building and has direct stairwell access to the street. 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 located on Chrystie Street (between Canal and Hester), directly across from Sara Roosevelt Park. It's 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. Easy access via the Manhattan Bridge to/from Brooklyn. Chrystie Street has a bike path with several Citibike stations nearby.
