Coworking Space

Entrepreneurs are Action Taking Dreamers!

CoLab_Factory_lounge_525pxIts 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).

CoLab_Factory_Image* 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

Local Industry Is Making Brooklyn Great Again — The Hook-Up 4/1

A rendering of Amalgamated Drawing Office.
A rendering of Amalgamated Drawing Office.
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.
Speaking of maker spaces, North Brooklyn is getting its first new privately-financed manufacturing/industrial space in 40 years. 25 Kent will soon be home to its own version of Industry City.
After one month and 19 burglaries, it seems as though police have finally caught one of the suspects involved in a rash of break-ins across North Brooklyn. Security footage suggests they entered a lot of (unlocked, why?) apartments at night, taking cash, electronics and other valuables. While his accomplice is still at large, and for forever after, remember to lock your non-suburban doors.
Like textiles and feminism? Good. This Sunday, there’s a stitch-in happening at Bushwick Inlet Park to raise awareness for abortion rights. That’s one stitch for every one of the 5.4 million women of reproductive age in Texas.
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).
Blooms are blooming, and the Greenway is showing the first signs of life. The two-way bike lane that’s been three years in the making is finally in the construction phase on West Street.
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.
Are countdown clocks finally coming to the G Train? Gothamist spotted some suspicious-looking packages at the Classon stop. If you see something, say something.

Become Greenpointers’ Studio Mate; Space Available at Dobbin Project Space

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.

Unique Workspace Opportunity In Storefront Gallery

$330 per month

Available: March 1st through Oct. 1st and beyond

Dobbin Project Space is a creative work and event space for artists, curators and programmers producing socially-engaged art and media. It was founded in September of 2012 by three socially engaged artists with interdisciplinary practices. All three co-founders work in the space. Additionally, we have three wonderful residents and are seeking a fourth.

Residents use the space as a shared art studio/co-working space Monday through Friday. On weekends, Dobbin Project Space hosts socially engaged art programming and events, including events by residents. We invite an artist, designer, curator, entrepreneur, community organizer, writer, or freelancer to join us starting March 1st, 2013.

The physical space is a storefront gallery with large white walls, ample light and wood floors. Walls slide to cover storage areas, leaving a beautiful work and event space. The gallery has two spaces: one room with street access and a large picture window and another large back gallery with windows facing a courtyard garden. There is on-site storage for all residents, multiple power outlets, track lighting, a private bathroom, microwave, fridge and modular work desks. There is room to host meetings.

The space is located in a unique studio complex called Dobbin Mews on Dobbin Street, situated between McCarren Park, Williamsburg and Greenpoint, nearby Nassau G and Bedford L trains. Resident rent is $330/month, including all utilities (heat, AC, Internet, electricity). Transportation: G train to Nassau, L train to Bedford Ave., B61 bus, B43 Bus.

The new resident must commit through Oct. 1st, 2013, with potential to extend.

Please email Sarah at dobbinprojectspace (at) with a paragraph about yourself and your work, including relevant links, and/or any questions. We will follow up by scheduling in person meetings.

Donated Coworking Spaces / The Yard

The Yard, a simply smart designed coworking space in Williamsburg has generously teamed up with Greenpointers to offer 5 donated coworking spaces for the upcoming week.

The donated spaces are reserved for individuals that have been displaced by the storm.

A lot of Greenpoint/Williamsburg residents have opened up their homes to those affected and I am sure work spaces would be appreciated!

If you are interested or know anyone that is please contact Andy (at) workattheyard (dot) com.
