Steiner Studios lot; Photo - Village VoiceNew York might get a boost to its film industry with the Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, which has been quietly breaking ground and emerging from the Navy Yard, at Flushing and Washington Avenues. Glenn Collins from the Times examines what the investors hope to bring to New York TV & film production, as well as Brooklyn. Backed by the Steiner Equities Group, facilities will have the largest soundstage in the Northeast (even bigger than Kaufman-Astoria, where most famously, Sesame Street films and The Cosby Show filmed) with high ceilings (for special-effects intensive films, something that current studio spaces lack). In March, the Village Voice examined the project as well, including possible sensitivities in the Hasidic neighborhood. Gothamist thinks building another production facility in the city is a good, as it can only mean more Law & Order spin-offs.
