CBS 30th Street Studio, also known as Columbia 30th Street Studio, and nicknamed “The Church”, was an American recording studio operated by Columbia Records from 1949 to 1981 located at 207 East 30th Street, between Second and Third Avenues in Manhattan, New York City. It was considered by some in the music industry to be the best sounding room in its time and others consider it to have been the greatest recording studio in history. It was at the time one of the most renowned studios and a large number of recordings were made there in all genres, including Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue (1959), Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story (1957), and Percy Faith’s Theme from A Summer Place in 1960.
