Offices are overwhelmingly responsible for the iconic Manhattan skyline, and there’s no denying that the Big Apple still sits atop the list of most desirable office locations — even after two years of reduced activity. Here, offices are as vibrant as they are diverse — and coworking is playing a larger role than ever.

As recently as just a couple years ago, coworking spaces were largely considered spaces for solopreneurs and freelancers. But now it seems that firms of all shapes and sizes are beginning to welcome a variety of working preferences, such as working remotely, as well as hybrid schedules that split time between home and the office. It’s not just for freelancers anymore.

Whether you’re searching for a cutting-edge office that’s jam-packed with amenities or a more traditional office environment, the best coworking offices in New York City are sure to provide the optimal workspace.
