The individual offices are small and separated by floor-to-ceiling glass, with frosting up to a few feet above the desks.

    I’ll be considering this spaces for my main office. Really intriguing places you have here.

    I have been to Neue house. It’s cool at first. as you work your hours it becomes meh at most. I had a gallery for 600 a month it was worth for the most part. But still, Meh…

  3. Marvin Culman

    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 🙂

  4. 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. For more info and updates please check out our site: http://www.massagegreenpoint.com

    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.”

  7. 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!

  8. Steph Cordes

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

  9. 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.
