This week we are featuring General Assembly for our New York Office Space of the Week. GA is an extremely innovative, enthusiastic team that is revolutionizing the education industry - and they have an office to match! I’ve been lucky enough to wander around both of GA’s open spaces - they have the perfect layouts for classes and events, and for this week’s New York Office Space of the Week #OSOTW! Their two spaces are located just around the corner from one another, at 10 East 21st St. and 902 Broadway, both in the Flatiron District.
Snacks are a seriously essential part of the workday… but are you torturing your office mates so you can get your noms on? No one needs a hangry coworker, but make sure you’re not being a discourteous diner either! Here are 11 of the worst snacks to bring to the office:
The NYTimes published an article this Tuesday from Rebekah Campbell titled, “Why I Ditched My Co-Working Space.” In her article, Rebekah touches on some of the pain points often associated with working in a shared space. These include issues like noise, not having a permanent desk or private space, and too many distractions.
Today kicks off (no pun intended) the semifinals of the world cup. From 32 teams, we are now down to the final 4. Today's match between Brazil and Germany features two of the worlds most storied soccer countries facing off in Belo Horizonte. There are lots of articles out there predicting winners based on the teams' performances in the tournament to date, the health of their respective starting lineups, and other things that they feel are pertinent. We feel there is a glaring hole in their analysis: the state of their office space leasing markets. What follows is a high level head to head comparison between the top two markets in Brazil (Rio and Sao Paolo) and Germany (Berlin and Munich)
Looking for a little midday pick-me-up? A little noontime noms before lunch? Or maybe just a yummy reason to stretch your legs and get away from your glowing computer screen? Here are some snacks we think are the best office-friendly options to satiate your grumbling gut (or ADD).

I recently attended an event unlike most tech slash networking events, fittingly titled “Wellbeing in the Workplace: Mind. Body. Environment.” As part of the small talks speaker series presented by Turnstone (@turnstone #TSsmalltalks) and sponsored by Steelcase, this event left me feeling calm, collected, and ready to take on the busy day ahead!
There are a variety of theories about office space and employee satisfaction. But what about curating your office environment to create an overall inspiring company culture, and to attract new talent? Does the presence of standing desks at your company make you a superior employer to one that utilizes the standard cubicle-ridden space?
Everyone knows New York is quickly becoming one of the best places in the world to be a tech company. We thought it would be fun to show where some of those companies have their NYC office space
More and more employers are allowing some of the the traditional office roles to become telecommuters.
Start up and technology companies in New York are always looking for shorter term leases than the standard. Unfortunately most landlords are looking for five year plus lease term, which can be hard for a new, growing company. Five years is a lengthy commitment and most either do not have the funds to make that type of deal work or are rightly concerned they will grow out of the space by then. Also, many of these types of companies are looking for loft type, open space, which is commonly found in the Flatiron District. So without further ado here are a few cool Flatiron office space subleases.

The other day, I was telling a friend about the progress that we have made helping businesses find office space online at TheSquareFoot. He commented on how exciting and fortunate we were to be seeing such great growth. I did what I normally do and tempered their enthusiasm.

Lee & Associates recently published a report on the market for office space in New York City for the previous quarter. The report is rather interesting, but I really enjoyed their map of New York City with relevant statistics. The graphic shows the inventory, vacancy rate, availability rate, and direct asking rate compared to the ten year averages. What does all this mean to the average small business? I will tell you!
