Return to Joria Studios
Starting in March 2014, our weeknight classes and some workshops will be held at Joria Productions, located at 260 W 36th St, New York, NY 10018 (between 7th and 8th avenue) on the third floor. This should come as good news to those of you who prefer the proximity to Penn Station, easy access to public transportation at 34th Street and ample street parking. We'll be able to accommodate larger meetings, our potluck socials and certain events not allowable in other spaces, all at a favorable rate.
Thanks to those of you who traveled with us downtown, and to those of you who first joined us there in the previous 12 months. We hope to see you all at Joria, as we continue to expand our programming choices in a more central location.
