Manhattan office and coworking space is among the most locally abundant in the world. In fact, it’s estimated that a new coworking space opens up every week in the Big Apple. And, as more and more workers move away from a 9-to-5 desk job and toward the flexibility of the coworking model, we expect to see the number of Manhattan coworking spaces continue to rise. Plus, no matter what neighborhood you’re interested in, a coworking option is never far away. Below, we cover some of the most popular coworking spaces in Manhattan.
Address: 214 W. 29th St., New York, NY 10001
It’s hard not to fall in love with the design of this coworking space in Chelsea, which spans seven floors of a modernized building that was originally completed in the 1920s. Come for the convenient location and stay for the world-class amenities and perks, which include micro-roasted coffee, uniquely decorated common areas and phone booths for total privacy. With subway connections to the 1, 2, N, Q, R, W, 3, and PATH just a few steps away, commuting is a breeze, and nearby after-work dining and drink options are abundant.
Address: 85 Broad St., New York, NY 10004
The Financial District WeWork space at 85 Broad St. was once the office of Goldman Sachs. Occupying five of the 30 stories in the building, the coworking hub combines the elegance of yesteryear with the tech of today. Located just a stone’s throw from the New York Stock Exchange, it’s also one of the most easily accessible coworking spaces in Manhattan — whether you’re taking the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel and parking in the garage next door; taking the water taxi; or hopping on the 2, 3, 4, 5, J, R or Z subway lines.
Address: 1740 Broadway, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10019
Much of what’s special about this unique space is not what’s inside, but what’s outside: Stunning city views and a private outdoor terrace that offers views of the storied, historic streets below. Central Park is just a short, three-block stroll away, as are the many restaurants and stores in Columbus Circle. Proximity to major subway lines at Seventh Avenue and 50th & Seventh Avenue — plus on-site parking options — make it easy to get to and from work when you pick this destination for your office activities.
Address: One Rockefeller Plaza, 10th & 11th Floors, New York, NY 10020
The iconic Art Deco building at One Rockefeller Plaza will make an impression on all who enter, whether for coworking or a business meeting. From the world-famous Manhattan address to the sight of the bold doorway, this coworking space is one that’s hard to forget. On-site amenities include a lounge, conference facilities, outdoor terraces, on-site coffee shop and many other top-notch coworking perks you would expect. Moreover, the adjacent Limani or Brasserie Ruhlmann make for perfect destinations for your lunch meetings. Nearby transportation options include subway lines B, D, F and M.
Address: 200 Vesey St., 24th Floor, New York, NY 10281
Located on the 24th floor at 200 Vesey St., Regus’ Brookfield Place coworking space in Manhattan is a superb commercial site with stunning city views. Conveniently located across from the World Trade Center, this property is already home to famous corporations like Merrill Lynch, Nomura Group and American Express. This premium-furnished workplace also offers panoramic views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. When you need a break from working, the complex offers several upmarket stores, as well as excellent dining options. Public transportation options include the 1, C, E, R, and W subways, as well as the BXM18, M15-SBS, M20 and QM11 bus lines.
Address: 8 W. 126th St., New York, NY 10027
Located right in the economic heart of Harlem, this WeWork offers open and airy shared office space designed to represent the future of work, while also honoring Harlem’s rich cultural legacy. (For example, design inspiration included Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington and the Harlem Globetrotters.) “The Stoop” — a distinctive, wooden elevated seating area — feels as much like a stage or basketball court as it does a shared space or arena for connection. Moreover, the space is awash in natural light and boasts warm wood finishes, as well as vintage artwork and furnishings. And, converting two levels of the original building into a single WeWork office space has yielded high ceilings and a gorgeous design. Meanwhile, getting here is especially easy via public transportation, thanks to the location’s proximity to the 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 trains, as well as the Metro-North Harlem-125th Street station.
Coworking in Manhattan is, in some ways, just like it is all over the world in that it offers freedom, flexibility and a sense of comradery. However, what’s different about coworking in the financial center of the world is the many unique options available; the fact that you can get off just about any subway stop to find a nearby coworking spot; and the unique amenities you’ll find in these locations that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
