Silvercup Studios Opens Third Location In The Bronx
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A Queens-based film and television production studio has opened up a third location in the Bronx.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo cut the ribbon on the $35 million, 115,000 square-foot facility on Wednesday, WCBS 880's Kelly Waldron reported.
Silvercup North, at 295 Locust Ave. in the Port Morris section of the Bronx, houses shops, offices and other support space in addition to four production studios, with 50 ft. ceilings -- the tallest of any production studio in New York City.
Cuomo says the project is part of efforts to revitalize the South Bronx neighborhood, and also bring in new jobs.
"It's amazing, all the ancillary jobs that are produced when you are producing a movie," Cuomo said.
Silvercup Studios opened in 1983 in Long Island City, Queens.
It's been home to "Sex and the City," "The Sopranos," "30 Rock" and "Gossip Girl." Dozens of movies have been filmed there, including "When Harry Met Sally" and "The Devil Wears Prada."
Current productions include "Girls," "Elementary" and "Madam Secretary."
