Q: Is there parking available?

We do not have any parking accommodations near Greenpoint. We recommend using the subway or a car service. From Manhattan's Grand central station you can catch the 7 train to the G Train to Greenpoint Ave. In Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The train stop is only two blocks away from our facility 236 Greenpoint Ave.

If you get lucky you may be able to find some street parking but it's challenging.

Featuring a sensor slightly larger than full frame, ALEXA LF records native 4K with ARRI’s best overall image quality. This allows filmmakers to explore an immersive large-format aesthetic while retaining the sensor’s natural colorimetry, pleasing skin tones and stunning capability for HDR and WCG workflows. Versatile recording formats, including efficient Apple ProRes and uncompressed, unencrypted ARRIRAW up to 150 fps, encompass all on-set workflow requirements.

The ARRI Signature Prime range is the first cine lens series to feature machined magnesium lens barrels, making the optics incredibly lightweight and robust. They are also the first to incorporate ARRI’s next-generation LDS-2 Lens Data System, with high data rates and absolute encoders for fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lens data and is being licensed to other lens and camera manufacturers.


With a compact and lightweight carbon body and the same image quality as other members of the ALEXA family, the ALEXA Mini has already proved a huge success in many different configurations and on countless production types. Capable of recording internal MXF/ARRIRAW and Apple ProRes formats including various 4:3 options for anamorphic productions, the ALEXA Mini is an incredibly versatile camera, delivering truly cinematic images and a small, adaptable form factor.


AMIRA features the same sensor and exceptional image quality as the ARRI ALEXA, recording superior images in HD, 2K or 4K UHD – suitable for any distribution format. With intuitive controls and an ergonomic design optimized for single-user operation, the versatile AMIRA has become a trusted workhorse for a wide variety of different production types, from narrative dramas and indie features to sports, commercials, documentaries and branded content.


Ever since its launch, the ALEXA system’s fundamental advantage has been its unique combination of the highest overall image quality with the most efficient workflows on set and in post. Based on extensive market feedback, the ALEXA SXT line of cameras further improves upon those qualities, raising the widely-accepted gold standard set by ALEXA still higher.
