At the intersection of arts and real estate
For 40 years, 42nd Street Development Corporation (42SDC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has funded and championed arts investments that have catalyzed neighborhood development. 42SDC’s two signature projects are Theatre Row and Music and the Brain.
Theatre Row is our vibrant and affordable collection of theaters and rehearsal studios where theater artists can collaborate and cherished shows are nurtured. Music and the Brain is our innovative program that builds cognitive and social-emotional skills in students in grades pre-K through 5th, through music literacy and classroom keyboard instruction. Over the last 20 years, Music and the Brain has served more than 400,000 students in under-served communities.
