Steiner Studios in New York opens five new stages to boost location filming
Steiner Studios, in New York City's Brooklyn Naval Yard, has opened five new sound stages in a bid to boost its appeal to film and TV producers. The Steiner facility was first opened in 2004 and at the moment is home to the lavish HBO drama Boardwalk Empire.
Michael Bloomberg is Mayor of New York City and attended the opening of the new stages: "A little over a decade ago, New York City struggled to attract the lucrative production industry to film here. Now the City is such a popular and prosperous home to hundreds of films and television shows, we have to work hard to keep up with the demand for stages and production facilities."

Robert Steel is Deputy Mayor for Economic Development: "The opening of five new sound stages in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a tremendous statement of long-term confidence in New York's film and television industry by Steiner Studios."
Business has been booming in New York's filming industries for the past few years as a result of the state's 30% film and TV tax credit. Over the past year New York City has also poached a lot of TV business from California, which at the moment doesn't offer a long-term tax credit for television productions.
