MTV's famous 'TRL' studio in Times Square: R.I.P.?

Posted on

According to a New York Post business story today, MTV may be saying goodbye to its famous Times Square studio, the space that served as a home to flagship shows like TRL.

Landlord SL Green has reportedly put the one-million-square-foot-plus space on the market after MTV parent company Viacom failed to renew the lease. TRL, of course, shuttered its doors last November after a decade-long run, but the loss of the studio would definitely signal the end of an era.

What will you miss if the famous spot is no more, Music Mixers? Did you ever stand on the sidewalks below with other superfans, waiting for your most cherished Backstreet Boy/former Beatle/Tokio Hotel porcupine to arrive for a guest appearance? Did you draw cursive “Mrs. VJ Jesse Camp” loops in your Trapper Keeper?
