Greenpoint Coworking is a shared workspace for independent workers. Our goal is to build and nourish community while fostering individual work. Our space is a platform where members can alleviate the isolation of working from home, share ideas, and team up with one another.
We are located at 240 North Henry Street, at the corner of Norman Ave in Greenpoint, Brooklyn 11222. Drop in and say hello!
GPCW was conceived by Sara Bacon as a means to an end to the isolation and lack of sharing that exists when one works alone from a home office. Sara is the owner and creative director of Command C, a boutique web design studio.
I decided to start GPCW because there are so many incredible, talented people, especially in Brooklyn, who spend day after day working from home without interaction with one another and therefore no sense of community. I love working for myself and running a business, but I felt a huge void at the lack of information and social sharing that happens when you’re part of a studio or firm. I needed to find a solution to this problem for myself and so many others I know who share this issue. – Sara Bacon
