Raw Historic Underground Gymnasium

This is a 2500 square foot gymnasium available for film shoots, photo shoots, and various events. The room measures 50 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 13.5 feet high. The gymnasium, located beneath a church, was abandoned in the 1970s. From October 2018 through April 2019, the space was renovated and is now available for your use. Thus, the look of the space is raw and industrial, including a retro paint job, a wall of brick, old basketball hoops, and a tiled tin ceiling. The floor is the original concrete, currently not finished, with small pocks and unevenness throughout. A video tour of the venue is available here: https://youtu.be/xVsWujC8ZNY The space lets in very little daylight. Even at high noon on a bright day, there is almost total darkness in the gym. This allows photo and video work to have total control over the lighting. There is a fan in the gym window allowing air circulation. Our HVAC system connects to a machine outside and allows additional circulation. The gym is equipped with a 5 ton central heating and cooling system, newly installed in 2020, to keep you chill all summer and cozy all winter. There are six electricity outlets in the gym, some with one socket, and some with as many as four sockets. One of these six outlets is a 220 volt outlet while the other five outlets support 110 volts. The circuits range from 20 amps to 30 amps. The space is equipped with a powerful WIFI network. Phone reception in the space is often weak, depending on your carrier. We offer a tall free-standing ladder, roughly 12 feet in height, to all renters. Photographers and videographers can use our ladder to capture overhead shots. All renters are able to use our collapsable movie screen and projector to stage their own film viewings. Our movie screen is approximately 22 feet by 12.5 feet. Our projector is a Panasonic VZ-580. Use of this equipment costs an additional fee. Renters are able to safely store their equipment in the space overnight. Renters are able to be in the space from 4am through midnight, with the exception of Sundays, when our hours are 3:30pm to midnight. The venue has a seating capacity of 50. Please notify in advance so that the correct number of chairs can be set in place. If you need more than 10 chairs, the venue will ask a furniture fee. Additional tables are also available for a fee. Our venue has a large selection of in-house photo and video gear. For additional add-on fees, renters may use: - Impact VC-500WLN 3-500Ws Digital Monolight with Transmitter Kit /// 3 x Monolights /// 3 x White Reflective Umbrella with Permanent Black Backing /// 1 x Wireless Transmitter /// 1 x Softbox with Speedring (24 x 36") - Polevault with paper backdrops (12.6' width) - White, black, green, navy, and charcoal backdrop paper - Bi-color LED modeling light - Softbox (20x20") with 500W Tungsten Photoflood Bulb - C-stand (10.75’) - 6" Backlight Light with 100W bulb - Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ tripod - Universal Filter Holder (12x12") - Filter Gels (Rosco CalColor Kit 12" x 12", 33 sheets) - Bi-color on-camera light - 2 sandbags (20 lb and 15 lb) - 2 x pedestal fans (18" and 16") - set of four apple boxes We are picky when it comes to booking events at our space, and say no to the majority of the requests we get, which are for parties and concerts. That said, we do love the events we host here that are right for our church basement. We favor small gatherings with a mellow daytime energy. A screening of your new short film could work great here. A dinner party for a small group of friends could be a great fit. We regret that at this time, our space does not offer wheelchair access. We’ve spent the last year restoring this basement from the 1800s, but we are not yet at the point where we can afford to build ramps or elevators. With the help of your rentals, our budget will get there. Thank you for your patience. Our space is more popular on weekends, and so you will notice that our hourly rate on Friday evening and all of Saturday and Sunday is higher. This difference is intentional. Keep in mind our special weekday morning rates. Between 4am and 9am, the space is available for $65 per hour. This is located on Bushwick Avenue near the Halsey J and Gates J stations, and a 12 minute walk from the Myrtle Wyckoff L / M station.

This is the quintessential old warehouse LOFT in Brooklyn. You can see a 3D virtual tour of the space here: https://my.matterport.com/models/8aiWPWsLMuS?section=media&mediasection=showcase There is a big living room area, a bedroom, a backstage room and a bathroom. The space is HUGE and able to host comfortably up to around 30 people for a production (films, photo shoots, commercials, etc). The completely windowed wall is facing South-East which gives the most perfect natural light all day long. The curtains can be open or closed to avoid shades moving. Most productions teams don't even bring lighting, the natural light is more than enough for most projects. On the main area -living room- there are all sort of scenarios that can be used as different backgrounds: A fully equipped renovated open kitchen, a dinning room area, a living room chill area with couches, a hammock and a swing, a projector, a piano and a desk area.

There is also a a cute entrance with a world map and a bench + a good sized bathroom - all black and white. We are on the top of the building, there is a massive elevator that can fit anything in one go, and we are facing a church, so the space is very quiet as there is not street noise. This loft is located in an old building that used to be a fabric factory. Nowadays it is the home of lots of young, creative and interesting people living in one the most artistic scenes of NYC. The apartment has been recently renovated by Lucia Puron (amazing interior designer) with a beautiful design featured in VOGUE and many other magazines. At the top of the building there is a HUGE rooftop with hammocks also available upon request only.
