Our 20,000-square-foot facility is located on the ground floor of 30 John Street in DUMBO, in a New York City landmark building constructed in 1909 by William Higginson for the Arbuckle Brothers, once America's largest coffee roaster and packager. The Media Center's open-plan space, featuring 14-foot ceilings and abundant natural light, was designed by Brooklyn's MESH Architectures.
Facilities open to the public include our education center, featuring multiple classrooms designed to host a wide array of educational programs partnership with General Assembly, including hands-on workshops, live demonstrations and expert seminars; a media arts gallery, showcasing cutting-edge, new-media storytelling installations from artists within our community; a 72-seat screening room for exhibiting and sharing the latest work from our Center and around the world; and a 1,600-square-foot café encouraging casual collaboration and discussion in a social-eating setting.
Facilities open to members at various levels of participation include our incubator space, designed to foster creation and collaboration between New York City's emerging storytellers, innovators and businesses, and our community and co-working spaces, reserved for both individual day use on a first-come, first-served basis and collaborative engagement for start ups based on an extended rental plan. Facilities also include conference rooms, editing rooms and a video lounge.
