Brooklyn’s proximity to Manhattan—along with being a more affordable option—is why the borough is becoming a major hub for brilliant young minds to cultivate the next round of technology. We opened The Yard, a coworking office space for creative professionals at the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, this past November. My partner and I saw the need for office space in the area. The surprise was the talent and creativity that actually came through the door: there are people here from all over the country working on the most amazing projects, products and intellectual properties. They are not all born and raised in Brooklyn, but they have come to the greatest city to cultivate and grow their projects. They could have gone anywhere with a laptop and cell phone but chose to be here in Brooklyn.
