NY Kids Club Seals LIC Deal


NY Kids Club, which provides preschool enrichment programs for early-childhood development, has taken space for a new center in Long Island City, Queens, the landlords’ broker announced.

The club signed a 12-year lease for 13,091 square feet on the entire second floor of the two-story, 22,294-square-foot building at 44-16 23rd Street between 44th Avenue and 44th Road, according to a press release from JRT Realty Group. NY Kids will join a fitness barre studio in the building. Last year, Barre3 leased just under 2,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor via a 10-year lease.
