We provide end-to-end co-living services to tech startups, entrepreneurs, digital nomads, freelancers, remote workers, professionals, students, and anyone looking to move to NYC. More importantly, we created a community that offers both general and professional networking, which personally benefits all members.Our Upper Manhattan House is situated in the vibrant, historic Harlem neighborhood.
This space features hardwood floors, all major appliances and exposed brick. The kitchen and common areas are roomy compared to the average New York City apartment, with open kitchens and living rooms, all furnished with everything you’ll need for work and play. We worked with interior designers to make the house comfortable for all of our members in any room of the house.
This space is move-in ready; all you have to do is show up with your suitcase. Everything is included in our flat fee: utilities, wifi, fully equipped kitchen, and much more. Expect a great night's sleep with our made in USA memory foam mattresses by Brooklyn Bedding.Surrounded by institutions of higher education, parks, restaurants and cafes, it’s an area full of things to see and do, while still being within easy reach of downtown Manhattan. Situated beside St. Nicolas Park and within easy reach of Central Park, you’ll find some of the city’s best jazz music on your doorstep, as well as multiple subway lines and buses taking you downtown..
The typical people who live in our spaces are between the ages of 21 and 35; around half are international members and half are American; about 30 percent are students (undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, or short-term programs); and 70 percent are already in their professional fields, from all different professional backgrounds! The gender breakdown changes all the time, but on average it’s 50-50.
Most of our locations are equipped with keypad access and an August Lock security system, although a few use traditional keyed locks. We have Nest security systems in all of our common areas to keep everyone’s valuables safe. These are not monitored, and are only accessed when our members request that we look at them for justifiable purposes (missing items left in common rooms, suspicious activity, etc.). Most of our locations also have lockers for members’ valuables. In addition to the above, coliving provides a unique, unintended security benefit: Because many people are living in the same spaces, there is virtually always someone at home.
The New York Housing Department policy disallows residential properties from placing locks on bedroom doors for fire safety purposes; however, even if we were allowed to put locks on the doors, we are committed to providing safe and secure coliving spaces through trust and mutual respect. Bedroom doors are unlocked because it is a display of this trust and respect; on top of our security systems mentioned above, our members are selected for their appreciation of a safe environment.
Security deposits are refunded within 15 days of departure from our premises. Deposits are returned to the account they were paid with, and this is the only way we are able to return funds. If you have since closed the account that you used to pay the security deposit, contact that bank, explain the situation, and they usually can temporarily re-open the account so you can receive and withdraw the funds.
From our house leaders (who will meet you upon arrival), to the events we hold multiple times per month, our team is dedicated to giving you the sense of community you are looking for, whether in a professional or personal capacity. You may choose to be as involved or uninvolved as you’d like; you are welcome to stay with us either way!
In the era of physical distancing, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of online technology.
