Whether you’re on a working holiday to New York, or live in the city and don’t want to commit to a long-term office rental, heading to a co-working space is a great option. Ideal for freelancers, startups and small businesses; with a coworking day pass in NYC, you can get no-commitment access to a fantastic office space. We’ve picked out some of our favourites in the city for you.

What is a coworking space?

Coworking is when a group of different people work together in a shared space. These people don’t necessarily collaborate, rather they’re usually freelancers or small business owners who don’t have an office space of their own. Taking on a hot desk in a shared office space with others offers a great, low-cost option for many growing businesses.

How long have people been using coworking spaces?

The first coworking space was opened in 2005 by programmer Brad Neuberg. Based in San Francisco, he designed the space to be more sociable than traditional business centres – but more productive than working from home. The number of people working from home has, of course, risen dramatically since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the proportion of working adults who did any work from home rising from 27% in 2019 to 47% in 2020. However, with many people reaching burn out working from home, we could soon start to see a shift in those statistics.

Benefits of NYC coworking spaces

If you’re one of those people who are ready for a change of scenery every so often, you’ll find there are a number of benefits to working from a coworking space.

Save money on office space

If you’re a solo worker, you don’t necessarily need a full office space just for you – but that doesn’t mean that you don’t want to work alongside others. Getting a day pass for a coworking space means you can keep a tighter control on your budget, instead investing money in other areas of your business.

Networking opportunities

Working alongside a range of different people from other companies gives you a great opportunity to network and meet like-minded people, something that’s hugely important for freelancers. When you choose to hot desk, you could be working beside a new client, your next business partner, or even a new best friend.


Maybe you need to work in Brooklyn one day and Manhattan the next. Or maybe you travel from state to state, or between countries. Perhaps you do a lot of project-based work and only need desk space every so often. Whatever your reason for requiring flexibility towards your working arrangements, a coworking space ensures you have a workspace that works for you.
