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.
