Laurea’s take on Greenpoint coworking on December 6, 2011 (Yeah I know super LATE!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We hope you had a festive holiday and the new year is treating you well so far.

Yes our posts are SUPER LATE for the Greenpoint coworking space but that is what happens during the holidays. 

Everything gets nuts in order to close out the year. 

I got back from an amazing trip to Mumbai last Saturday so I am just now catching up and getting back into the swing of things here.

Ok enough excuses, here we go…

The Greenpoint coworking space would be perfect for you if you lived in Greenpoint and wanted to stay in the neighborhood but get out of your house. It is not super ideal for me since I live on the South Side of Williamsburg so it is an awkward location for me and actually faster for me to get to a coworking space downtown.

It is the smallest space we have seen so far which would work if you want to work in an intimate space and don’t need to do a lot of client meetings and phone calls in the space.

Address: 240 North Henry Street, Brooklyn

What I liked: The people working there were very friendly, there was a relaxed atmosphere and the workspace faces a window so you don’t feel like you are working in a small box. You get to hang out with a cute dog named Sushi.

Lunch: Martha and I had lunch at http://www.fireplaceny.com/ which had a pretty diverse menu of bistro type food. The portions were huge for the price so if you are super hungry then go here.

Good happy hour spots close by: We didn’t have time for happy hour that day but if we had we would have tried one of the spots on Nassau Avenue or went to Five Leaves by the park.

What could be better: More desks and bigger space but given this seems to be a very neighborhood space their amount of space is probably the right fit for the neighborhood.
