Hi there! I wanted to let you know about our co-working office space on Graham Avenue, Bitmap Creative Labs, that opened this January.
At Bitmap, creative small businesses are part of a community of like-minded creative professionals, who can work together on larger projects than they could handle on their own. We believe that it is important for co-working spaces to provide independent workers with access to the same level of resources available at larger firms in order to do professional work – the most valuable resource being other talented, inspiring people.
We have equipped the space with large format printers, a motion graphics render farm, secure file storage space, a conference room, event space, work tables with cutting mats, color laser printing, and kitchenette (stocked with free blue bottle coffee, and various tea choices), 24/7 access for lease holders and a fast, free internet connection. We are two and a half blocks from the Graham L stop, right across the street from Motorino, and around the corner from Second Stop Cafe.
Founder Nick Robalik, Creative Director at HERO (http://www.hero-shop.com), started the space, because he thought that Graham Avenue could use a space that was useful to the North Brooklyn community of creatives (rather than another bar). Though Nick really values the independence he has found by running his own business and working from home, he missed having a community of creatives physically working in the same space. He figured he was not the only one.
Bitmap officially opened to members on January 1st, 2011. Open desk space is available for rent for daily, weekly, and monthly rates. The more permanent and spacious workspace areas are rented on a monthly basis, and the monthly rate decreases with a six month lease. Private offices require a six month lease. Conference room use is free to members who are renting on a monthly basis, and is available for rent for local community members.
We have been working hard to make Bitmap a nice comfortable space, and we are trying to get the word out. We would love it if you could stop by some time and check it out for yourself for a future article in WG news!
Thank you for your time,

Hi there, I really enjoyed your coverage of the Lobster Joint on Manhattan Ave and wanted to tweet it, but it isn’t posted online. Also, do you have a twitter handle?

hello WG editorial team and WG readers:
I would like to invite you all to stop by and visit our exhibition: Latin-American contemporary featuring works by 7 artists in a variety of mediums all of whom grew up in South America. Throughout their working lives they have traveled extensively developing a global sensibility while maintaining their original identities. Through geometric abstraction, figure portrait, nature photography, slow fashion and political critique they share their unique take on what’s happening in the world around us, all while continuously pushing to create their own languages.
