Central Location 

Maspeth is the geographic center of New York City, making it ideal for distribution and logistics operations like FedEx, UPS, Conway Freight and others. Pockets of heavy industrial zoning have also made it historically a manufacturing hub, a tradition which continues to this day. However, as industry continues to move out of state, more non-traditional uses are beginning to take root. York Studios, a fully approved film and television production studio on Rust Street, and The Knockdown Center, a multi-purpose creative and event venue on Flushing Avenue exemplify how Maspeth is beginning to absorb the demand for flexible commercial real estate, particularly as these types of businesses continue to be priced out of Brooklyn and Long Island City.
