The best places to start or grow your business, collaborate and network.

Remember Google’s corporate headquarters in the “The Internship,” where Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have an alternative tour full of collaborative desks, colorful meeting rooms and extremely social employees? Well, you don’t have to work at Google to get that kind of a work environment. In fact, you can be a one-woman-business and work in a space like that.

Yup, that’s right; 9 to 5 today isn’t strictly cubicles or home offices anymore. In NYC’s modern coworking spaces you can conduct meetings and do your daily work next to others who’ve quit their daily-grind desk job in favor of something a bit more unconventional. Freelancers and entrepreneurs can work and socialize together in the same space without architectural or communicative boundaries. Multiple companies share the same coworking space, lounge areas and kitchen, which leads to a fun rhythm of the 9 to 5 flow.

The Most Interesting Coworking Spaces in NYC

We’ve been hearing so many good things about being a part of these communities that we began to wonder if we should be spending a day or two a week in one of these spaces, just for a change of scenery (and to make some new business connections). So we looked into it, to figure out which spaces would be the best fit for us. Luckily, NYC has plenty of coworking places choose from. With lots of added perks (want to take a break in the arcade room, anyone?) and flexibility (only want to work in the office one day a week?), there’s no reason not to try coworking.

Here are our top picks for the most interesting coworking spaces in New York City:

    Oh god I was searching for that everywhere! Why I didn’t think about Urbanette! Thank you for the ideas I’ll try some soon, and I’ll share that around 🙂

  2. Late summer, Massage Greenpoint will be opening up on Greenpoint Ave in Brooklyn. In addition to therapeutic massage, we will also have rooms available to share with our community as a coworking space for healers. We are a women owned and operated business. We will be working with local acupuncturists, therapists, estheticians, and other healers to create a communal space that is beautiful, clean, and ideal for bodywork.

    So cool! It makes me think that I should research whether there are places like that somewhere close to where I live. And when in NY, I’d love to try at least one of them out!

    Coworking is fun 🙂 I personally think it can make my identity stronger because I work amidst people working for different companies, doing varied kinds of work. I feel like I don’t have to put on a work persona because there is a very little internal politics or direct competition.

    This is a great list and I would love to try the coworking space that would give me that “farmhouse feel.”

  5. Trish Potter

    That’s really useful information for an entrepreneur starting out without the staff or budget for a standard office. And they seem like it would be much better for networking and collaborating too!

  6. Steph Cordes

    I had never heard of an all women co-working space. That’s awesome!

  7. Holy cow, I had no ideas there we some many coworking spaces in NYC. I had heard of Neuehouse before, but not the others. Gonna check them out!

    A farmhouse feel?

    I’m very interested to work in a place like this. Staying home and trying to work at home has it’s perks, but I don’t mind sharing an office space.

    That Wix one is so cool. Free WiFi and coffee? Where do I sign in?

    • Alexiane Verdito

      Haha yeah for sure that’s all we need right? ^^
      Give me one coffee and I can work for one hour, give me a coworking space with coffee and wifi, I can work for decades!

    Wow, if the day ever comes that I would need to have my own office, I would definitely like to stay in a place like neuehouse!!!
