Business Description

Born in 1903 in Maspeth, Queens, Knockdown Center was built to manufacture glass; it then was used to make doors. Situated on a sprawling three acre lot, it was a center for industry for over one hundred years. Now, it wants to be something else entirely. It wants to inspire and host the most inventive, courageous, and powerful creative projects it possibly can. Knockdown Center wants to challenge the world as it is, and manufacture sustainable ways to serve as a foundation for current and future cultural production. Send a proposal. You’ll be surprised what we’re game for.
