G Is for Greenpoint: New Recording Studio in Artist Haven

Greenpoint is gentrifying, and so, too, it turns out, are its recording facilities. Bid farewell to the echoey basement debut album.
Following in the footsteps of other locally nutured phenoms like TV on the Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, young hipsters can now vie for immortality in Studio G. The recording studio has leased 5,000 square feet for 10 years, with a five-year option, at 44 Dobin Street. This is the recording studio’s second Brooklyn location, migrating, like so many of their kindred, from Williamsburg. The 10,000-square-foot building, owned by Flour and Sugar LLC, also houses City Aquarium. The asking rent was $12 a square foot.
