Top Co-working Spaces In NYC
In recent years, many more New Yorkers have opted to work from home, which can be convenient and help improve work-life balance. On the other hand, many remote employees find themselves feeling isolated without the interaction that can be found in a typical office environment. Co-working spaces allow employees of all industries to work alongside one another and escape the loneliness of their apartment. Below, you will find some of the best coworking spaces in NYC!
When you say the word “co-working space” to most New Yorkers, the first thing to probably pop into their head is WeWork. WeWork has been around since 2010, with the mission to not only be a place for people to work, but to be a true community. As they say, “A place you join as an individual, ‘me’, but where you become part of a greater ‘we’.” While it’s an international company with co-working spots spanning the globe, New York City alone hosts 56 sites. From Midtown East to Downtown Manhattan, they have you covered.
Why Pick It: One of the great aspects of WeWork is their varying options. You have the ability to choose different plans based on your budget and needs: a “hot seat” which is their most affordable option (averaging around $500 per month for a Midtown location), meaning you don’t have a dedicated desk but you’ll always have a space available, which caters to varying amounts of people depending on your team.

While perhaps not as widely known as WeWork, Beewake offers something that could be of true value for some people: flexibility. Rather than signing into a contract, you have the option to rent space out as needed. So for example, if you find that you are in charge of school drop off and pick up on the Upper West Side for a day (or week), you can go onto their website and reserve space at a desk in the neighborhood. This can end up being a much more affordable option, costing you only $30 a day from 9am to 1pm–plus you have the added benefit of being able to move around from space to space as your schedule shifts.
Why Pick It: If your schedule is unpredictable in terms of times and neighborhoods which you’ll be working out of, Beewake is probably the best option for you!
While co-working space in the lower and middle part of Manhattan is common, it’s quite scarce on the Upper East Side. Enter: The Commons. Situated on 86th Street, just steps away from the 4, 5, 6, and Q subway lines, this co-working space is a blessing to New Yorkers living Uptown and living the freelance life. And at only $395 a month for unlimited access plus locker space, it’s quite a great deal.
Another cool thing about The Commons? If you happen to be a therapist, you can rent out reoccurring space by the hour to host your sessions…nameplate on the door included! Booking space per session rather than just throwing down a ridiculous amount of money to rent an office space per month could be just what the doctor ordered!
Why Pick It: If you live on the Upper East Side (The Cambridge and The Lucerne Glenwood residents…we’re talking to you!) just think of all the things you can get done if you’re saving an hour a day in commute time! Oh! And did we mention they will provide you with all the coffee you can drink?!
