Brooklyn is a borough teeming with innovative thinkers and diligent entrepreneurs. Ideas pour out of these creative minds, and all they need is a place to simmer and settle. Where to go?
Enter Class & Co, the sleek and stylish coworking space in East Williamsburg (260 Ainslie Street, third floor). This boutique coworking home boasts a cozy vibe with exposed brick, tons of sunlight, and unique work stations ranging from private offices to a reimagined train cart for private phone calls. While getting your work done is key, Class & Co also aims to foster a community of young professionals and intellectually curious minds from different fields, creating an ecosystem for great thinkers to come together and enjoy classes and community. And Class & Co’s mission goes beyond its handsome four walls — the company helped sponsor our Polar Vortex market, another community-building event.
Its challenging to build your dream from the comfort of your home. With the bed, television, and sofa calling your name with no one looking, its easy for motivation to take a nap (literally).
* Take your hustle to our state-of-the-art coworking space where the WiFi, security, furniture and utilities are included. Where there’s no long term leases (unless you want one).
* Be in the orbit of other freelancers and startups who are dream building right there with you! Nothing says motivation like other community members hustling on the couch across from you. Continue reading →
Everyone groaned when BMW leased the former Brooklyn Night Bazaar space, but it looks as though the dealership is actually doing something really cool with the space/probably trying a little too hard to do Brooklyn right/might still deserve the benefit of the doubt for now. “Amalgated Drawing Office” will feature a restaurant, retail design store, co-working space, and start-up accelerator. One thing it definitely won’t be is an automotive space, but “design” is apparently an open-ended concept for the time being.
Bioremediation workshops are coming to Greenpoint. Details are still to come, but the Newtown Creek Alliance will be laying down some knowledge on urban soil, harnessing beneficial microorganisms with compost tea, and mycoremediation (that’s using fungi for remediation).
While things are popping, other things are drawing to a close. Verboten just got shut down. Fraud, mismanagement, sexual harassment and racism weren’t the official reasons, though. The government seized the property over unpaid taxes.
At PencilWorks in Greenpoint, Brooklyn our mission is simple. We are dedicated to cultivating a dynamic, creative, and collaborative community for Brooklyn’s nomadic workforce.

The amazing space that is the home of Greenpointers has a spot opening up for a new studio mate. I can honestly say that I love working there. The other residents are wonderful people and the space itself is great for co-working, but also if you have small events like art shows, screenings or readings.
