Studio Rental Availability

In observance of the Phase 2 opening of Offices and the Phase 4 allowance of Media Production activities, A.R.T./New York is pleased to announce that we will be offering flexible space studio rentals at [email protected] in Midtown Manhattan and at South Oxford Space in Fort Greene, Brooklyn with limited hours starting October 1st. Only activities that fall under these categories will be permitted. Examples of media production include: live-streaming, video production, musical recording, and photo shoots. Examples of office use include: mailings, meetings, and desk work.

We will be watching the state's New York Forward website closely and will announce studio availability for additional activities as soon as we are legally permitted.

If you would like to book space in October, you may email your requests to [email protected] for [email protected] and [email protected] for South Oxford Space. Due to the occupancy restrictions, we will be temporarily charging the rehearsal rate for all bookings, instead of the higher rate we would normally charge for these types of activities. We ask that you carefully read over the safety procedures and restrictions listed below to determine if your activity meets our requirements before contacting us.
