The National Video Center was a video production company with studios in Washington, DC, Boston, Atlanta, Connecticut and New York City until June 2002. National Recording Studios opened in 1959 in New York City located at 730 Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets - Recording Studios were on the 6th floor which included Studio B, and insert shoot stage for the fledgling National Video, located on the 11th floor. Original owners were Irv Kaufman, Hal Lustig, and brother Carl Lustig.
National moved its headquarters to the former West Side Airline Terminal at 460 West 42nd Street (which was on Theatre Row (New York City)) as well as maintaining a huge music recording studio in what used to be the ballroom of the Edison Hotel. National Recording Studios built a second studio in Boston, Tom Love Audio, which became Rumblestrip in 1994. Studio shots from the movie Tootsie were filmed in the West 42nd Street studio TV-1, and the closing shots of the movie are the exterior of National's building.
The company's divisions in Boston are still active, although it is now NationalBoston. Napoleon Videographics is still active, too.
The production studio worked with clients such as MTV, PBS, CBS, NBC and USA Network.
In 1992 NY1 launched its initial studio on the fourth floor.

“Columbus stood in his age as the pioneer of progress and enlightenment. The system of universal education is in our age the most prominent and salutary feature of the spirit of enlightenment, and it is peculiarly appropriate that the schools be made by the people the center of the days demonstration. Let the national flag float over every schoolhouse in the country and the exercises be such as shall impress upon our youth the patriotic duties of American citizenship.”
—Benjamin Harrison (18331901)
