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 Downtown Brooklyn House is a recently renovated house in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, a cozy neighborhood with an incredible array of food, drink, and shopping options.
The house is a beautiful four-story brownstone that fits perfectly into the neighborhoods ethos. The interior is newly renovated and has updated wooden floors, furniture, appliances, to make the house feel modern but warm. It has furnished apartment and multiple common spaces; living rooms kitchens, coworking space, all of which members have access to, making the space massive in comparison to your average New York apartment.
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, printer and scanner and much more. You’ll even have access to an individual safe, coffee, tea, soda, shampoo, shower gel, hand soap, towels and much more! We’ve thought of every detail so that you feel cozy and at home. Expect a great night's sleep with our made in USA memory foam mattresses by Brooklyn Bedding.This is one of our houses is located in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The coliving space is a three-minute walk from the Bergen Street Metro Station (G train) and a ten-minute walk to the A, 2, 4, 5, Q, and R trains. It’s a 15-minute subway ride to Downtown Manhattan.
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!
