NEW YORK, NY, September 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Having gained a degree in music and jazz studies from NYU, New York City has always remained a prized place to Christopher Smyk
. As a professional who has developed his own artistic abilities within this iconic city, Smyk explains that New York City is a place that calls to the creative crowd. However, as a city that is packed in with small apartments and numerous business spaces, Smyk notes that art can sometimes get lost in Manhattan's comprehensive real estate selection.
Having found success in real estate and interior design, Christopher Smyk entrusts new developments in New York City real estate to focus on creating properties for the artistic resident. Smyk points to a recent Wall Street Journal article
that highlights this new movement.
Specifically, the article states, "Spaceworks, a nonprofit created by the city in 2011 to develop affordable workspace for artists in New York, opened its first rental facility [Aug. 20], the first of five planned sites totaling 30,000 square feet. The first site, a 3,800 square foot space in Long Island City, is intended for performing artists, with three rehearsal rooms for dance and theater and practice studios for musicians. The second location, with two 200 square foot visual art studios, is set to open next month in Gowanus. The five sites in Queens, Brooklyn and Governors Island will cost $5.8 million, largely funded by the city, and are expected to be complete by 2015."
Christopher Smyk responds, "Part of NYC's draw is that's it's the birthplace of so many important movements in art, music and fashion. If you take that away, how many people think of this as the best city in the world? So you cannot have the NYC you have today with all its swank-boomtown vibe without NYC first having been such hospitable ground to so many important and amazing artists. Without every cultural and artistic phenomenon that's been born here over the last 40 years, there is no One 57, there is no 145 Hudson Street."
For Smyk and many area residents, these new projects will likely inject a new spirit of creativity in a city that is already well known for its artistic personality. "The city's plan is fantastic and is a very authentic way of returning the favor on behalf of everyone who now calls NYC home," Christopher Smyk concludes.
Christopher Smyk is a creative professional who has led many successful endeavors that have showcased his talents as an artist and a businessman. After earning a degree from NYU in music and jazz studies, Smyk made major waves in the entertainment world contributing to major films and television projects. In 2005, Smyk applied his love for design to break into the real estate world, leading comprehensive interior renovation projects to flip properties for a profit. Focused on function style, Smyk has also followed extensive pursuits in the fashion industry, working to develop sleek, sophisticated menswear that proved more approachable by male consumers than what other leading designers in the fashion world had to offer.
