State-of-the-art audio and video equipment are needed for world-class TV show productions. Manhattan Center in New York City provides this and more.

[New York, 2/21/2019] – New York City is a prime place for television show tapings. The Big Apple, with its dynamic, bustling city streets, is home to about 40 American TV show tapings including Good Morning America, NBC’s Today, and Saturday Night Live.

Most of the TV shows filmed in New York are broadcast across the country and even to other parts of the world. Because of this, the studios where these shows are filmed should have quality audio and video equipment. What’s more, studios need to have professional sets and an area from which the audience can comfortably watch the recording.

These qualities are exactly what Manhattan Center’s TV studios offer. Located a couple of blocks from the Penn Station on 34th Street and 8th Avenue, Manhattan Center’s TV studios provide professional production spaces perfect for topnotch productions and shows.
