They erased the history in more ways than one. According to Wikipedia,
the building at 460 W. 54th Street was demolished to make way for luxury
My understanding, which could be way off, is that most (if not all) of
the former RCA Victor and CBS-Columbia studios have been closed down,
with most of the New York buildings demolished. EMI still maintains
studios - at the very least Abbey Road and Capitol - but who knows how
long they can afford to keep them staffed and maintained? Or where/how
they will fit should Sony/BMG do a merger with EMI...
