HOLLYWOOD EAST

Spurred on by tax incentives, the NYC entertainment industry is riding a wave

By TAMARA GLENNY

New York City’s resurgent film and TV industry is growing fast, thanks in large part to the storied Steiner and Silvercup Studios (in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Long Island City, respectively). Now both are launching major expansions. At the Navy Yard, Steiner is building six new sound stages on a 179,00-square-foot lot; by 2027, the plan is to turn the Yard’s gorgeous but dilapidated historic Hospital Annex into an entire media campus. Following suit is the much newer York Studios, which is opening a facility next year in the Bronx. That studio is going up on what’s now a 10-acre empty lot by the river in Soundview, a neighborhood that the city has announced will have its own ferry stop in 2018.
