Record Store Day
Known as the fourth largest city in America in its' own right, Brooklyn is a market that, until recently, was underserved by the entertainment industry. Recent economic development initiatives have sparked new projects that include Barclays Center, the new event arena and home of the Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball franchise, the rebirth of Coney Island and the transformation of the Brooklyn waterfront into the world class Brooklyn Bridge Park.
These new developments, added to the Coney Island baseball home of the New York Mets minor league affiliate, The Brooklyn Cyclones, and Steiner Studios, have provided new opportunities and created a growing need for quality representation.
