CoWork Williamsburg

BY NATALIE MILLER-MOORE
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

CoWorking is becoming popular in larger urban centers as people are shifting to telecommuting models and entrepeneurship is on the rise. As a self employed journalist in Williamsburg, Natalie Miller-Moore sees the need for it in our less-than-urban small city. So she has helped found CoWork Williamsburg and is here to compare and contrast the pitfalls of working from home or a coffee shop with the benefits of a cowork space. Because, afterall, a coffee shop is not a productive place to work.
