Iconic New York Studio Power Station To Be Restored

New York’s iconic Power Station studios, the only studio in New York capable of recording a full orchestra, will be restored to its former glory by its new owner The Berklee College of Music.

Power Station has been ground zero for albums by Neil Young, Dire Straits, Muse, David Bowie, Madonna, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Australia’s Divinyls.

The Robert Palmer and Duran Duran side-project Power Station named themselves after the studio when they recorded their album there.

The original Power Station was built in 1977 by Tony Bongiovi, the cousin of Jon Bon Jovi (Bongiovi). The premise was bought by Avatar Entertainment Corporation in 1996 and renamed Avatar Studios.

Berklee will spend $25 million to bring the studio up to a standard suitable to operate for at least the next 10 years.

The studio is on West 53rd St near 10th in Manhattan.
