New York City needs no introduction – and its borough of Queens is just as popular when it comes to work and business. The second-largest economy of New York City's five boroughs (after Manhattan) and the one with the most diverse economy, Queens also has a lot of small businesses.
Coworking spaces have appeared around the borough to accommodate all these entrepreneurs and workers of all kinds. Wayviator has selected the best of them so that your next visit to Queens can be as productive and pleasant as possible!
Hunters Point Studios
Located in Long Island City, Hunters Point Studios offer a range of facilities, from communal coworking tables to dedicated desks and private offices. The space is bright and equipped with HEPA filters as well as plants to keep the air fresh. You have to be a member to use the communal tables (with prices starting at $150 per month), which grants you access to meeting rooms, a shared printer, rentable lockers, as well as a kitchen, phone booth and mailroom. However, you can also book a private office on demand, from $95 per day, and a meeting room by the hour. The space can also be rented out for events. Private offices and dedicated desks can be accessed 24/7 and rented on flexible terms.
Work & Tot
Designed specifically with parents in mind and woman-owned, Work & Tot is a coworking space that understands how difficult it can be to balance childcare and work. In addition to all the necessary amenities for entrepreneurs, the space also features an area where children can safely play under the supervision of professionals. However, non-parents are welcome too, and memberships can be adapted to your needs. Combine a coworking session with an after-school pod for your child, or select a regular coworking membership for 5 or 10 10-hour weekdays per month, or as many as you wish (the full time membership costs $420). The childcare options are as varied as the working spaces: in addition to coworking tables, phone booths, meeting rooms, dedicated desks and private offices are also available, all with plenty of coffee.
