Kaufman Astoria Studios, located at 34-12 36th Street, announced this week plans to construct an 18,000 square foot sound stage within the next two years. The new stage will be the eighth studio at Kaufman Astoria, not including the recently opened back lot or the music recording studio that doubles as a stage.
The stage will be called Stage N, and will be located next to Stage K, adjacent to the back lot. The back lot, the city’s first, opened in December. “With Stage N, Kaufman Astoria Studios will be able to accommodate even more projects and continue to make New York the film and television capital of the world,” said Hal Rosenbluth, President, Kaufman Astoria Studios, in a statement.
