 The Queensboro Bridge over the East River: Gateway to L.I.C.

 

 

I have a spacious and sunny two-bedroom apartment in Long Island City that I'd like to run as a coworking. My current roommate (with the bigger sunnier room) is leaving in August. I'd keep my small room in back. The rest of the place would be dedicated to the office. I'm pretty flexible about what the final product is, so long as the other half of the rent (about $650.00) gets paid.

 

Check out this site: mattcoop.com/apartment.  I originally used the site to find a roommate. It has a floor plan, neighborhood info, descriptions, and photos.

Suggestions


I see the space as having a lot of community functions (and potential revenue sources).  Add your suggestions to the list:

 

1. Tenants that pay a regular fee for office space.

2. Parties, music events

3. Film screenings (the lving room is shaped nicely for a projection screen theater)

4. Informal language classes for the neighborhood

5. Workshops of any sort

6. Use your imagination

 

It would also be conceivable to work out a deal with the building management company to take on some of the management responsibilities in exchange for a deal on the rent.  The building is currently, shall we say, undermanaged.
