Making the trip into Manhattan super quick, Brown Bears Studio is conveniently located a hop, skip, and jump away from Broadway Junction. Our community of creatives, who range from music producers to fine artists, all enjoy being situated within a lively creative hub. Down the road, Universe City, a locally run urban farm, is within walking distance to Brown Bears, allowing for a lovely urban escape. Soul food is the preferred flavor around here and we recommend Soulful Food, serving up turkey wings, whiting, basa, lobster, shrimp, candied yams, cornbread, and shrimp and grits.

The neighbourhood streets ooze with creativity. Murals are in abundance. In 2014, a two-year initiative called Transform/Restore: Brownsville, saw local artists collaborate with the New York City Department of Probation, the Pitkin Avenue Business Improvement District, and Groundswell to color the neighbourhood streets with what has quickly become historic street art signatures and a must to seek out.

Brownsville is also famously known for its hip hop and the neighborhood offers plenty of opportunities to collaborate in Brown Bears Studios uniquely designed soundproof basement that is specifically allocated for the creation of music. A must see if you are a music producer!

Our aim at Brown Bears is to support the surrounding community by promoting their creative programs which are central to our desire to keep connected to the community we position ourselves in, and facilitate creative conversations and collaborations. We also enjoy promoting artists that occupy our buildings that work directly with the local community and do awesome creative community engagement work.
