What is Coworking?

Co-working is the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge. A membership club that brings people together, who share the need for a place to conduct their business in an interactive space.

I’m on the phone a lot for work, with this be an issue working at BKLYN Commons?

No, our space operates on mutual respect. If you are using a private office, we can provide you with a VoIP HD voice phone and add unlimited US talk, for a monthly fee. If you are renting an open or dedicated desk, and you have a conversation that turns private, feel free to step into our private phone booths or conference rooms at any time!

What is your policy on having pets in the office?

BKLYN Commons is responsible for assuring the health and safety of all of our members. In keeping with this objective BKLYN Commons has formulated a policy balancing these concerns with the desire to promote a positive employment experience by allowing appropriate dogs in the office. A dog, up to 25 lbs, may be allowed in the office if its health and behavior are acceptable within an office setting, and if it does not adversely affect office operations.

In addition, the following dogs may not be brought to the workplace:
· sick dogs;
· dogs with fleas or any disease that is communicable to other dogs in the office or to humans;
· dogs that have not been properly vaccinated, or that have internal or external parasites;
· dogs that bark or behave aggressively; or
· dogs that foul the inside or outside of the building.
