Yes, it’s been more than a year since the Hive at 55 opened its doors in Lower Manhattan as the only coworking space in the neighborhood. We recently celebrated our first year with a great group of people. We invited our members and friends as well as our sponsors – NYC’s Economic Development Corporation, our landlord (Rudin Management), and of course, the Downtown Alliance. Over delicious food and drinks, around 60 people escaped the slushy weather to mark this special occasion.

The Hive is a shared workspace for independent professionals, and while there is plenty of collaboration and networking among our members, there is nothing like a party to get them chatting. Current and former members mingled with event organizers, sponsors, and others who have supported the Hive over the past 12 months. It’s always great to see two people getting to know each other who wouldn’t have otherwise met – especially because it often leads to business opportunities and job leads!

One highlight of the night was listening to the remarks of our sponsors. We are truly thankful for their support and we wouldn’t be what we are today without them. There really is a lot happening in New York City’s startup community, and we’re glad to be a part of it!
