The Most Interesting Coworking Spaces in NYC
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.
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.
