Some folks consider Williamsburg to be NYC's hipster central, but it's much more than that. Many startups and tech companies occupy old warehouses and industrial spaces in this neighborhood, but you'll also find families and quiet streets, plus a convergence of arts and culture, with plenty of music venues, restaurants, and boutiques. For scrappy startups and young companies that are seeking a workspace neighborhood that’s equally as hard working, curious, and fun loving as they are, Williamsburg is a top-notch choice. There is a great mix of company types in Williamsburg, but many of the offices in this Brooklyn hood are home to early stage companies still seeking funding. That’s because many of the workspace options in Williamsburg are flexible workspace environments, built to accommodate growing teams, that love to collaborate and innovate together.
