Liz Ostler from the 3rd floor at 1375 Broadway, was just featured in The New York Times this last week! Liz designed and built the large puppets for the Prospect Theater Company’s production of JASPER IN THE DEADLINE.
The show runs from March 16th- April 13th at the West End Theatre in the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew (263 West 86th St., NYC). Congratulations Liz!

Daylight Saving Time is finally here! This Sunday, March 9th at 2:00 a.m we will “Spring forward” to 3:00 a.m and we’ll all have that extra sunlight to get us through our evenings.
Like everyone else, we’ll be changing our clocks before bed on Saturday, with the exception, perhaps, of the tech savvy members in our coworking spaces. They’ve probably already set all their clocks set to adjust automatically. Over the years, we’ve seen the Monday morning rush after DST. Don’t get left behind (pun intended) and suffer the effects of missed meetings and late shipments.
So: 2:00 a.m Sunday morning, or realistically, right before bed on Saturday night!
MicroOffice is introducing “Foodie Fridays” with MealKu! MealKu handpicks certified cooks to create homemade dishes for you to pick and have it served hot right to your desk. All dishes are healthy choices and vegetarian dishes are also offered, and are a welcomed change from the slice of pizza down the street for lunch. Every Friday one lucky member will have the opportunity to win a free lunch on us. We’ve received a sneak tasting of these delicious options, and we are excited to bring this opportunity to our members! Please keep a look out for our flyers for “Foodie Fridays” for more information on how to participate. Be sure to check out mealku.com!

Throw your textbooks and CDs out the window! Duolingo is the new way to learn a new language. If you’re with a startup or small business, growing your consumer base is a never-ending priority. Becoming bi or multi-lingual help you do so in a more efficient way. As someone who has never been able to retain the Spanish language, despite years of high school classes, this app is seems helpful beyond belief. Duolingo encourages translating phrases (both verbal and written) from Spanish to English — real practice. The innovative app has gotten tons of publicity with its new Buzzfeed deal… Keep an eye out for it in 2014!

Out with the old and in with the new!
We’ve kicked off Coalition at our Union Square location, and can’t wait to continue. Here, we have two coworking, open-desk areas that tons of entrepreneurs and small businesses love. To keep the love strong, we’ve decided to give our smaller space a bit of a face-lift…
We’re clearly still in the process of revamping our by-the-desk space, but it’s moving along nicely! Once this place is open for business, we’ll have an industrial ceiling, vibrant new paint, an inspirational word-wall, and brand new custom furniture — all promoting a more cohesive community. Our existing and new members are certainly in or a treat!
Are you ready to Join the Coalition?

On Wednesday, October 16, our MicroOffice team bid a sweet “see you around” to one of our community managers, Ryan Young. Although he’s not going far, we were all sad to see him leave our Midtown location and excited to see him take the reins of our new location, HarlemGarage. Yesterday, HarlemGarage finally opened their doors to new members, all excited to work in one of the first coworking spaces in Harlem. Ryan describes the place as “relaxed and full of people with many different backgrounds coming together with a shared goal, building a community, and creating successful businesses.” Now, approximately 20 members have moved in, but by next week, HarlemGarage will be home to 50! We wish all the best to our new location and members; we know it will be a success.
Cheers to Harlem!
For more information, be sure to check out the HarlemGarage website.

Thanks to MicroOffice for hosting Thinkful’s Back to School soiree/one year anniversary celebration. A year ago, we launched Thinkful, an online school, with a big mission: Deliver high quality career education through mentorship online. Now, we’ve got a team of 10 employees, 60 mentors, and over 500 students who’ve used our program to learn to code. We teach front-end web development and programming in python through mentor-led, project-based learning. It’s exciting, and we wanted to take the time to celebrate with our NYC-based network of students, alumni, and friends.
We gathered in our new office. It was awesome for everyone to meet face-to-face. (We’re an online school so it’s easy to forget how big the community has become!) We had some beers, Mediterranean tapas, and swapped stories about learning to code at Thinkful. Morgan, our engineering fellow and master front-end coder, DJed the event. Big thank you to everyone who came by, and we hope to do it again soon!
