Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity. They are children, women and men who leave or who are forced to leave their homes for various reasons, who share a legitimate desire for knowing and having, but above all for being more.

Eric Anzalone Eric, you know I only wish you the best! Hope in the future the idiot loses the original Village People and you guys take the lead! Again, what goes around comes around !
I am very disappointed from a booking I made yesterday for Friday, September 27 from 3 to 4pm (while teaching at Vassar College) at the 520 8th Ave. location. I specifically asked for Friday, September 27 and I was apparently booked, by Mike, erroneously for the same day September 24 from 3 to 4. This was a major mistake on the part of the booking assistant, Mike, who did not apparently hear that I was booking for Friday. I called during a break from teaching at Vassar College (never booking studio rental for the same day EVER) and charged for the room as a “no show”! Yes, they sent a confirmation, however, I wasn’t able to retrieve and acknowledge it while I was teaching and DID NOT ask for a “same day” rental!!! I was charged and called as soon as I was available to do so (noticing that I was erroneously charged for the wrong date) and was told that because I was sent a “confirmation of booking” (mind you, for the wrong date requested), I was charged! Then the call was dropped! I’ve had trouble/issue with previous bookings when the booking agents have screwed up!!! Why does this company think that their staff is infallible??? I’ve been a very good customer and now I’m being taken advantage of and a victim of their staff’s ineptitude and stealing my money! Why isn’t there an interactive system where clients can book themselves through the website rather than having to call in?!?! This would certainly remedy the miscommunication between client and booking agent!!! I still seek reimbursement of yesterday’s charge!!!
Hi there, from the U.K. looking to hire a room with a piano ahead of a gig at Rockwood Music Hall on September 11th. Any chance there’s space? I don’t have a phone over here.... just WiFi right now. Amba 😊
