It’s hot out. Take a cold shower before bed and make tough decisions about which room to put your air conditioner in hot. If you’re a freelancer or work-at-home type we’re betting that your couch already feels sticky and that your favorite coffice is crowded and cranky. Do yourself a favor, invest in your business, your future and keeping your core temperature below 100 degrees and start working at The Yard. The co-working space just opened a new Lower East Side location at 85 Delancey Street, and they have free-flowing coffee, all the AC you can handle and opportunities to rub laptops with like-minded independent workers and small businesses.
Here at Brooklyn Based, we’ve set up shop at The Yard’s Brooklyn location at 33 Nassau Avenue, where Williamsburg and Greenpoint collide. The structure of heading to an office has kept us calm, collected and focused on summer days that might have ordinarily tempted us to play hooky, or just languidly surf the internet on the couch while “working.” And we swear, what we’re saving on AC bill at home is practically paying our rent.
What’s more, The Yard is full of people. Not like, L train at 8:30am full, but you can strike up a conversation in the kitchen with someone other than your coffeepot–someone who might have a business that’s complementary to yours, or who might know that one person you’ve been dying for an introduction to. There are 230 members working across nearly 100 companies at the Williamsburg location and the LES office is at 30 percent capacity after just three weeks. You can rent an office space month-to-month, or a work space on the daily at both locations. Call 718-782-7900 or email Andy@workattheyard.com to schedule an appointment to take a look at either location, and get 10 percent off your first month at either location when you mention that you read about The Yard on Brooklyn Based. And come say hi if you come by to take a look! We’re in Suite 87.
