Radio Star is a restaurant, bar and cafe inspired by the radio era of the 1940s. We are located on Transmitter Park, the home of WNYC from 1937 to 1990.
The post-war period was a time when transparency was needed and radio brought people together for news and entertainment. Two radio towers stood at 304 feet, broadcasting to all of NYC and dominating the Greenpoint skyline. WNYC rebuilt trust in the city and beyond, serving as the model for public broadcasting.
The fixtures and furniture of Radio Star are original from the time period.
