352 Onderdonk Avenue is a great place to live in one of NYC’s most exciting neighborhoods, Ridgewood, Queens. It has a lot of shared resources and a lot of opportunities for fun while also having adequate privacy and a comfort (not always found in NYC communal living). There are three floors, a big second story terrace with plants tended by UnionDocs. The location is close to excellent transportation, a 20 minute subway ride to the center of Manhattan.
The first floor commercial space is occupied by the screening space where our public events take place. It also houses the UnionDocs office.

The two floors above the main space house our residency which consists of 6 private bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a recently renovated kitchen and dining area, a meeting and work space, a living room with a tv and a guest suite for visiting artists. Both levels have wood floors throughout, lots of natural light. The common spaces and bedrooms are fully furnished. Bedrooms can be locked, but common spaces are shared by the six residents and guest artist. The common spaces are available for meetings, work sessions and screenings for the use of UnionDocs participants and staff. The building also has high-speed internet and a washer and dryer that can be used at no additional charge.
