Comprising five boroughs and a population of more than 8 million, New York City is an iconic base for all business types. Opening an office here will surround your team with some of the world’s best talent and create a launchpad for your business to both local and international success. The only tricky part? Choosing the right neighborhood for your team.
The Financial District is home to the world’s largest stock exchange; the West Village and Chelsea are dotted with art galleries and foodie destinations; Dumbo is a hotspot for leading creative agencies; and technology startups and enterprise companies are scattered throughout Midtown and the Flatiron District.
Premier developments like Hudson Yards, One Vanderbilt, and Dock 72 are changing the city’s skyline—and the office landscape—by creating pockets of community and innovation that stand apart from the surrounding city.
All this potential, as well as an economy that’s showing no signs of slowing down, makes New York an attractive place to put down roots—and WeWork’s all-inclusive office spaces take the stress out of moving in. Whether you’re opening a headquarters or launching a satellite operation, you’ll find a wealth of opportunity in the iconic metropolis. Here are five ideal office locations in N.Y.C.
The Financial District
This city’s position as a world leader can be largely attributed to the Financial District on Manhattan’s southern tip. Anchored upon historic Wall Street, the surrounding skyscrapers rival the investment and financial service sectors of London and Tokyo.
Alongside banking, you’ll also find businesses in information services, technology, and law thriving in Lower Manhattan—not to mention a number of corporate headquarters.
In office space that once housed investment giant Goldman Sachs, WeWork 85 Broad St puts your business in good company. Right next to the New York Stock Exchange, and close to parking and public transportation, this is a prime address to grow your team—and our private offices and dedicated desks are perfect for budding financial or legal firms.
The financial district is also home to WeLive 110 Wall St, which offers fully furnished, temporary co-living spaces to employees coming for a short visit or a longer stay.
The site of massive revitalization in recent years, Hudson Square is a rapidly growing neighborhood in Lower Manhattan. Huge transformations have turned what was once the city’s printing district into a vibrant mix of office spaces and residential buildings.
Buzzing with startups and established companies, this modern neighborhood still attracts media companies, public relations firms, and independent publishers—just like it did back in the day.
WeWork has several floors of workspace in the Hudson Square neighborhood, all built to drive productivity and help forge connections. Our location at 368 9th Ave offers 10 floors of private offices (suited to teams of three to 50 employees), modern conference rooms, and art-filled lounges.
One of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods, Williamsburg is a hub of arts, music, and tech entrepreneurs. Boutiques and buzzing restaurants draw a trendsetting crowd by day, and bars and music venues keep the action moving into the night.
In a converted warehouse brimming with industrial vibes, WeWork 109 South 5th St is ideal for freelancers, media firms, and startups alike. Establish your team in a private office and enjoy easy access to our thriving community of innovators in North Brooklyn and beyond.
Brooklyn Navy Yard
Old-school work ethic meets modern amenities at the Brooklyn Navy Yard—a mixed commercial district at the intersection of urban planning, technology, and design. This is a unique and affordable place to grow your team, and the surrounding eateries, farmers’ markets, distilleries, and boutique shops make lunch breaks simple, too.
WeWork Dock 72 offers space to growing teams and established companies in this iconic complex. In nine expansive floors, our coworking space is designed to optimize productivity and engagement. Home to legal, nonprofit, and technology professionals, there’s no end to inspiration in the Brooklyn Navy Yard—and WeWork Dock 72 sets you up for success.
Lower Manhattan is the place to be if you have clients in the financial or international business sectors, and Little Italy offers a vibrant blend of business savvy and culture. This Italian-American neighborhood is home to historic architecture, frequent street festivals, and a wealth of culinary delights.
Ample transportation options make Little Italy convenient (no matter where you’re coming from), and the neighborhood borders the lively bars and restaurants of SoHo and Tribeca—ideal for keeping your team happy and engaged.
WeWork 154 Grand St offers fully furnished private offices for teams large and small, and our all-inclusive amenities and onsite staff make settling in easy. Just one of the many WeWork locations in Lower Manhattan, this building is great for hosting networking events and making new connections.
If you’re looking to open an office in New York City, the flexible agreements and all-inclusive amenities at WeWork locations make for a seamless transition. All you need to worry about is finding the right neighborhood for your team, business goals, and vision for the future.
