The Metropolitan Building

Dating from 1909, the same year the Queensboro Bridge was built, the Metropolitan Building was first an electrical parts factory. In 1980, Eleanor Ambos, who had a successful antique furniture rental business in Manhattan, bought the building for storage and to accommodate a variety of artisans to set up their studios and work rooms. It quickly transformed into a venue for events, photo shoots and films. It is truly a unique space that inspires the imagination.
