Avatar Studios, formerly known as The Power Station, is a recording studio at 441 West 53rd Street in Manhattan, New York City. The building was originally a Consolidated Edison power plant; but after a period of vacancy, it was used as a sound stage for the television game show Let's Make a Deal. In 1977, it was rebuilt as a recording studio by producer Tony Bongiovi and gained renown as one of the finest acoustic environments for recording in the world. It has won several studio industry awards over the years, including a "Les Paul Award for Special Lifetime Achievement" in 1991. The complex was renamed Avatar Studios (under the Avatar Entertainment Corporation) in May 1996.
