Last month we mentioned a group looking to create a coworking space in Astoria – such a space would be a welcome resource for freelancers, independent workers, telecommuters, entrepreneurs, and other Western Queens residents who don’t have a traditional workplace.
In the meantime, for those who want the occasional coworking environment, there’s always Loosecubes, the “private global office sharing network.” It’s a website that lets offices list their empty desks so that solo workers can sign up to work there when they’re craving a productive space and some temporary coworkers.
So far, there are three Loosecubes locations in Queens. One of them is the Krate office in Long Island City. This web design studio – located in the same building as the Secret Theatre and the LIC Art Center (GMAP) – hosts independent workers at its empty desks. Loosecubes members can sign up to work there up to twice a month for free.
Freelancers, telecommuters, and entrepreneurs of Queens: Where do you work when you don’t want to stay at home all day? Where do you meet other creative professionals?
