What is SHARED Brooklyn?
SHARED is a coworking space for creative and freelance professionals and like minded individuals sharing space and amenities in a collaborative environment.
We believe that the sum is greater than the parts.
We are a green, sustainable work space, utilizing as much of the original building materials as possible. Our space has been built and fashioned by local Red Hook craftsman and artisans to be gentle on our environment.
We want you to be more awesome.
Where is SHARED Brooklyn?
Red Hook, Brooklyn. Our location, 185 Van Dyke Street, is built out over the water in a 150-year-old warehouse on the second floor, provides unbelievable views of New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan, and Governors Island. Perfect for the creative professional to work, think and daydream.
Need a break or some quiet time, SHARED Brooklyn is located next door to Valentino park and pier. A perfect place to take a walk, brainstorm or just chill out. With a well-known pie company located at the base of the building, there is the sun, kayaking and fishing off Valentino Pier. Take a five minute walk and you are in the heart of Red Hook’s restaurants and shopping.
