Our studio is a peaceful and sun-lit space on  Steinway St. between Broadway and 34th Ave. (closer to Broadway) in the heart of Astoria, Queens. 
We're just 3 stops from Manhattan and at the foot of the Steinway St. station on the R/M subway line.
 
Our neighbors include The Frank Sinatra High School of the Performing Arts, Queens Council on the Arts, Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image as well as MOMA PS 1, one of the oldest and largest contemporary art institutions in the United States.
 
We are excited and proud to be part of the lively Astoria-L.I.C. arts scene!
Look for the big blue 'Ferrari Driving School' awning as we are in that building on the third floor. Please note there is no elevator. Your workout starts at the bottom of the stairs ;-)
