The Best KettleSpace Coworking Locations Near Travel Hubs

Blog

If you’re working for yourself, or remotely for someone else, one of the most important factors in deciding where to work is proximity. Some decide to work just feet from their beds, but most of us know the shortfalls of working from home: distraction, isolation, and more distraction! 

We need to get out of our homes, but we don’t need to have a long commute. Thanks to the various locations that KettleSpace operates, a short commute is attainable if you live in New York City or the near surrounding area. This is largely because most KettleSpace locations are near major transportation hubs and the others are easily accessible by subway or bus. 

Coworking locations near Penn Station and Herald Square 

For commuters from New Jersey or Long Island, we have a few locations within easy walking distance to these two transit hubs:

The Wilson - 132 West 27th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues

Pondicheri - 15 West 27th Street, between Broadway and 5th Avenue


And a short subway ride or slightly longer walk away:

Sarabeth’s Park Avenue - 381 Park Avenue South, at SE corner of 27th Street

Merakia - 5 West 21st Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues

Upper West Side Coworking Space

If you live in Harlem or the Upper West Side, this location is for you:  

The Ribbon Upper West Side -  20 West 72nd Street 


Editor Note - this is my go to location. I love the space for a number of reasons but most importantly I enjoy all the natural light that comes in during the day. Stop by and say hi if you see me sitting in one of the booths.

East Village Coworking Option

If you live downtown on the east side, or if you just prefer a cool downtown vibe, try:

Baar Baar - 13 East 1st Street


Visit a few locations that are closest to you. But don’t forget about the others. While most community members primarily frequent one or two locations, many find the others useful on occasion.             

For instance, KettleSpace member John Apesos typically works at The Ribbon Upper West Side because it’s closest to where he lives. But he said he sometimes uses the other locations for meetings.

“I’ve used Baar Baar and The Ribbon in Times Square for meetings mainly due to the convenience factor,” Apesos said.

Also, if you want to switch up your work environment, meet new people, or get to know new neighborhoods, KettleSpace’s many locations will allow to do that. Consider working somewhere new tomorrow!
