We cannot thank you enough for your patience, endurance, and compassion throughout the pandemic. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that New York State will be following the CDC’s guidance on reopening. This means that as of May 19th, fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear masks indoors as businesses permit. If you are fully vaccinated, you will no longer be required to wear a mask when working at BKLYN Commons.
Please continue to be respectful of each other’s space while coworking and contact the BKLYN Commons team with any questions, comments, or concerns.
As the world inches towards a new normal, BKLYN Commons looks forward to hosting in-person celebrations, events, and milestones for our members and the community. If you would like to reserve BKLYN Commons’ expansive outdoor rooftop patio for your upcoming engagement, please contact BKLYN Commons Event Manager, Lorraine Campbell: firstname.lastname@example.org.

“That’s ten years of my life, and all of the events and emotions, transcribed in oil on small silver squares,” said Chuck. “My main intent in my work is to represent the beauty of the larger queer community and my chosen family, to show the beauty in all types of bodies, and to record our lives in these times.”
