Taking down all the florescent lights

Lumber recovered after demo of the sweatshop fabric cutting tables; This was my home/office, notice the desk, bed, and dinner table.

Many 8' true 2x12 planks came from the table tops. There were 3 cutting tables 50' long and 6' wide when I moved into the loft.


2x4s collected from an upper east side construction site dumpster

The Giant gas meter. I installed small gas heaters in each room and rented the rooms for living. Later when I converted to rehearsal rooms ConEd did an inspection and put in a gas meter so I took out all the heaters. The rooms still stayed warm because I put walls over all the windows for soundproofing.

Standing by the elevator with a view of studio D and E. We had a working mail shoot next to the elevator.

Kitchen in the common area was shared by tenants from each of the 5 small rooms. This space later became the front desk and waiting room for bands.



Common kitchen area looking toward the bathroom and door to stairway.

The bathroom, "Is anyone in there?"


The common shower room. This eventually became the 'pink' room where extra equipment for rehearsal rooms was stored.

Looking down hallway toward future front desk area into Studio A with the freight elevator on the right.

Sheetrock shipment; This represents about half the 'rock it took to build all the rooms. Notice the suit bag hanging from the ceiling. I was selling food supplements to health stores during the day thru a business partnership with my sister Ann called Creative Arts Marketing.



Looking into Studio A from future front desk area
