Originally built as a Consolidated Edison power plant, this building became The Power Station recording studio in 1977 under the direction of producers Tony Bongiovi and Bob Walters. The result is an award-winning recording space used by scores of musicians and bands. In 1996, the studio was renamed Avatar Studios.

Bob Dylan's 1983 album Infidels was recorded at The Power Station from April–May, 1983. Dylan needed someone with experience with new recording techniques, so Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler was selected to produce the album. Additional musicians include the Jamaican reggae rhythm section of Sly & Robbie.
