This morning there was a nice story on WNYC about the Brooklyn Creative League. At the WNYC website, there is also a map of many “coworkin” locations around the city. In Park Slope alone there are many “coworking” locations, a place where you can rent a desk and have a place of work.
These spaces are ideal for the freelance writers or telecommuters or budding entrepreneurs, who don’t feel like setting up shop at the Tea Lounge.
Places like the Brooklyn Writers Space, Montauk Office and the Brooklyn Creative League offer individuals the advantages of an office job with a lot more flexibility. Perks like conference rooms, kitchens, companionship can make the working day that much easier for freelancers and the self-employed.
