Knockdown Center

Map & Directions 52-19 Flushing Ave.
Flushing, NY 11378


Merchant's 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.

  • Time Out New York on 07/18/13

    When Tiki Disco began in the backyard of Roberta’s, it was for those in the know. Now, it draws huge crowds to the Knockdown Center—an ex-factory and courtyard in the Queens-Brooklyn border badlands.

  • Chitra A. on 04/08/13

    this space is incredible, old glass factory now turned into an arts center with super unique installations. Will be introducing food soon too!

    Mini golf opening rescheduled for August 17 due to bad weather! Bummer, hope to see you there.

  • kate w. on 07/06/12

    An expansive space on three acres near Bushwick, where eclectic pursuits will converge to usher in a new era of experimentation, risk and economic sustainability.
