Some of the greatest music ever recorded happened in studios in New York City.


Listen to “Kind of Blue” and you can hear the sound of Miles Davis trumpet bounce off the 100ft ceiling of an abandoned church on 30th Street. Listen to “Bridge over Troubled Water” and you can hear Simon and Garfunkle's vocals reverberate through the back stairwell of a building on 52nd Street.


New York City is constantly under construction, building and rebuilding, and never sentimental.The music is revered, cherished, and celebrated - but the spaces it was recorded in are not. There are no plaques on the wall or bronze markers on the sidewalk.


These are the stories of some of those studios and the music that was recorded there.
