It can be a challenge to stay connected and productive while you’re on the road. Sure, it’s easier than ever to work remotely thanks to laptops, smartphones and reliable Wi-Fi, but if you actually want to be productive, you still need to find somewhere you can actually work — preferably someplace with the right resources and an environment.
Fortunately, there’s another option: co-working spaces. Exploding in prominence over the past decade or so, co-working spaces are essentially shared office spaces for road warriors, freelancers, digital nomads and startups. More secure than coffee shops and equipped with everything you need to get your work done, co-working spaces are the latest and greatest way to manage when you’re away from your regular desk.
Each space has different access rules, membership, day-pass options and prices. If you’re only in town for a little while or only need a space for a couple hours between meetings, you might just be looking for the closest and most convenient space. In that case, the best way to find and gain access to a co-working space is through Croissant, an app that connects users to nearby co-working seats in 10 cities.
Blender Workspace, 135 Madison Avenue, Manhattan
Blender Workspace offices a perfect balance of comfort, style and functionality, presenting a deliberate and curated atmosphere plus services above and beyond just a seat and desk.
When you first walk into Blender’s space, you’ll notice the art on the walls, a sign that it considers its workspace more than just a place to work. Blender creates, in essence, a productive gallery space. An in-house art curator brings in new pieces every few months. A large cafe-style area offers members and visitors places to sit, work, eat or chat. Coffee, tea and water are complimentary, with other specials occasionally available.
