Chad and I went to Manhattan last week to see Then She Fell with a friend. During the day, we set up our workspace at the Ace Hotel. We’d never been there before, but we’d read about people using the lobby as a coworking space. It was good for us to get out of our apartment, our normal working spaces, and our city and try something new. I was a huge fan of the conveniently located Stumptown fueling station and the critters that creepily watched over me as I worked.
3rd Ward is a coworking and makerspace in Brooklyn. I had been hearing for months that they were planning a second location in Philly, and I’m excited to say that it’s finally happening! The Philly location is at 4th and Thompson. It’ll offer coworking space, classes, and events, starting tonight! There’s an opening party from 8 to midnight with drinks, DJs, food, and something to make!
They’ll be open for free coworking this week from 2 to 8 pm Tuesday through Friday. You can definitely find me there during that time.
I was lucky enough to get a little tour a few weeks ago, when they were still furniture-less and setting things up. The space is beautiful, and I’m excited to spend a ton of time in it in the very near future!
