Tech firms have traditionally flocked to Dumbo and, more recently, the Navy Yard, but now they are embracing Downtown too, reported The New York Post. In the past eight months, 11 tech firms have set up shop Downtown, including four at MetroTech, said the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. Six more have signed leases at 325 Gold Street and 33 Flatbush Avenue. Homer, which makes apps for babies, and MakerBot, the 3-D printing company, are among those who recently made the move. Tech firms are more willing to consider Downtown because Dumbo and the Navy Yard are full, with long waiting lists. It doesn’t hurt that the area has good transit options, too.
