The Music Building (also called the Manhattan Music Building) is a music rehearsal space that has been open 24/7 since 1979. With 69 studios over 12 floors, the building has had numerous musicians honing their craft within its walls over the years.

In 1999, The Strokes would spend countless all-nighters at their rented space rehearsing their material before releasing their first album, Is This It, in 2001.

Other music icons that have used the rehearsal space include Joey Ramone, Madonna, Billy Idol, Television and The New York Dolls.
