MNN El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center

In 2012, MNN opened a state-of-the-art community media center at the old Engine Co. 53 Firehouse on East 104th Street in East Harlem. The facility features three HD production studios, including a three-camera studio, as well as editing services and a Youth Media Center. The Firehouse offers many Community Events, and Media Education workshops.

Orientation

On the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm (with a session in Spanish offered at 4:30 pm each month), The Firehouse hosts an Orienatation, offering those interested an opportunity to learn more about the classes, including our classes offered in Spanish, and the certification process. Sign up for the next Orientation here.
