Power Station at BerkleeNYC, formerly known as Avatar Studios[1] is a recording studio at 441 West 53rd Street between Ninth and Tenth avenues in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City.

History

The building was originally a Consolidated Edison power plant. In 1977, it was rebuilt as a recording studio by producer Tony Bongiovi and his partner Bob Walters.

The complex was renamed Avatar Studios (under the Avatar Entertainment Corporation) in May 1996. In 2017, the studios were renamed back to Power Station, by special arrangement with BerkleeNYC.[1]

Musicians and bands

Major acts who have recorded there include the band Power Station which was named after the studio itself, and many others. Sting's 2016 album 57th & 9th is named for the intersection he crossed every day to get to the studio.
