The Manhattan Center building, built in 1906, houses Manhattan Center Studios. ESPN2's "Cold Pizza" originated here every weekday morning.

The 12,000 square foot Hammerstein Ballroom at Manhattan Center Studios is an elegant pre-war ballroom featuring a hand-painted ceiling mural, ornate woodwork and three balconies overlooking the main room and stage. The 75 foot high Hammerstein Ballroom ceiling holds many rigging points for production d├ęcor and lighting options. Ties to the in-house audio recording studios and video control rooms make the space an incredible venue for productions, special events and webcasts by merging its theatrical past with modern technology. The space accommodates up to 2,500 people for receptions and theatrical productions and 1,000 people for a seated dinner.
