Kaufman Astoria Studios first opened in 1921, and has long been a centerpiece of New York City’s media industry. The Astoria-based complex is no longer relying on its historical footprint, having recently become the first studio in the Five Boroughs to gain a backlot for filming. A backlot is a space containing permanent exterior sets. The latest addition to the campus will be a newly built four-story office building at 34-11 36th Street, Queens, that will include two new stages, which YIMBY can now reveal. The studio’s Astoria on Stage LLC is behind the applications.
