I'm not sure I totally understand the concept of this new business being opened by Liena of the Ditmas Park blog but it seems interesting. While I think access to: "a desk, chair, wireless Internet, printer/scanner /copier/ fax, tea and coffee" is readily available to most residents of the area already, the second aspect of this description "a community of writers, editors, telecommuters, bloggers, graphic designers and other professionals" is very intriguing (...especially to a lonesome, isolated blogger like me.) And the possiblity of having the space available for meetings, classes, and other gatherings peaks my interest further.
I will post more about this once I learn more about the Ditmas Workspace.
Ditmas Workspace (http://www.ditmasworkspace.com) occupies a beautiful professional office space on the corner of Ditmas Avenue and East 17th Street, a short walk for Ditmas Park residents and just two blocks from the Newkirk Avenue B and Q stop, and three blocks from the Cortelyou Road stop.
Full-time and part-time members have access to all the amenities of an office: a desk, chair, wireless Internet, printer/scanner/copier/fax, tea and coffee, a quiet space to work, and a community of writers, editors, telecommuters, bloggers, graphic designers, and other professionals.
We're also considering making the space available in the evenings for meetings, classes, and other gatherings.
For tours, rates, and other membership information, please contact Liena by emailing LZS@ditmasworkspace.com
