Awhile back, we nodded to the perks of coworking and featured 5 awesome coworking spaces in NYC. We love finding new hubs of creativity in our city, and so we decided to read up on other popular spaces that creative professionals might be interested in. Here are 5 more awesome NYC coworking spaces worth a visit:
A coworking space can be a daunting investment, especially for budding creatives who are still establishing a client base. With full-time memberships starting at $175, The Productive is a budget-friendly option with ample inspiration to be had. It’s located in the heart of Midtown at 40 West 38th Street, and offers discounts for 3-month and 6-month contracts. They even have free weekly figure drawing lessons.
Web development platform Wix is brilliant for this concept. Wix users can enjoy a free coworking and event space in Chelsea, one of New York’s artsiest neighborhoods. Whether you’re a freelancer, entrepreneur, or just taking a day to work remotely, you can pop in and snag a workstation here. The fact that everyone is using the same web platform makes for super-productive networking. When you’re not working or chatting, join one of many learning events geared toward helping you build your business.
At $450 per month, Ensemble is one of the more distinguished coworking spaces in New York City. But with that spend comes 24/7 access to a great location in “Silicon Alley.” Voted one of NYC’s coolest coworking spaces by TimeOut New York, Ensemble boasts an uber-collaborative atmosphere and all the amenities and perks you’d need to take your performance to the next level.
If you’re a techy at heart, Spark Labs is the place for you. Located near vibrant Union Square, this space is dedicated 100% to tech and media professionals. Membership comes as a day pass, 3-day-per-week pass or 24/7 access, and members become part of the global Spark Labs community and benefits. "A community of innovators," Spark Labs can be found from Tokyo to Dubai to Vancouver, and everywhere in between.
Stop – here us out: Jersey pours hundreds of thousands of commuters into Manhattan each day. We’re pretty sure that some of you live there, and for those who do (plus those who are feeling uninspired by the Manhattan grind), Indiegrove is a two-floor palace for creativity. It’s clean, bright, comfortable, and about 10 steps from the Grove Street PATH station (meaning you can get to Manhattan in minutes). Plus, as is the case with any NJ-NY comparison, your money goes a lot farther; you can get your own space here for about the same price as a general membership at many Manhattan spaces.
