we <3 jesse and his crazy good photo skillz.
I test drove the little lounge area at Green Spaces last night at NY Nightowls. It was certainly loungier, and much more social than the rest of the room, but in between conversation and fits of laughter, some real work was happening, and I’ve come to appreciate the coworking group as much for the times in between the working as I do the times when I’m hunkered down in piles of code and email.
We’re SO excited to see San Franicsco and LA Nightowl groups kicking ass late-night! YAY!
NYC, so proud, so proud! Here’s a few of our crew:
(ps - we hate Apple. :) )
jesse = the man.
Another late night with the NY Nightowls, the most awesomest coworking group around.
mled asked: Are any Nightowl events run in other cities? I'd love to know if there's one organised in London.
We’d love to help you organize in London! Email us at hello @ nynightowls . com
Tonyb is hard at work at @NYNightowls :)
I’ve found a home of us. Us the late night, social workaholics, creative beings who tire of the Starbucks scene or lonely home office.
You want to go out but you have two hundred projects to work on. Then a group has been formed just for you! NY Nightowls (http://nynightowls.com) is a group of young designers. business owners, bloggers, etc that come together weekly in Lower Manhattan to chat, blog, design, and whatnot over beer/wine, water, coffee, and red bull from 9p.m. to 3 a.m. in a green open space work loft.
Get out your laptop (there’s free wifi), pull up a seat and either work in silence or be one of the “cool kids” at the end of the work stations sitting on bean bag chairs talking about everything business and with lots of social media advice.
The group inspires my late night work energy and even though I’m one of the silent clan typing away on my laptop I’m glad to have a place to focus and feed my creative need to be around people even if I never utter a word to any of the other nightowls.
You can learn more about the work group via their website http://nynightowls.com, follow them on twitter at http://twitter.com/nynightowls and RSVP to work sessions at http://www.meetup.com/NY-Nightowls
Oh and yes it’s true the group does have some very good-looking women and men (geeks are sexy these days).
NY Nightowls, creative types like us! « Miss Versatile

NY Nightowls goes global! 4 weeks, 6 cities & lots of people skipping sleep to get shit done later…
EXCITING NEWS! In just 4 weeks, we’ve witnessed late-night co-working take off not only in New York but around the world too! San Francisco, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Tel Aviv and Stockholm are among the newest sister cities to join the Nightowls network!
Danielle, Jen, Nathan, Johan & Hezi - you rock for stepping up and reaching out to take on role as organizer.
We’re also thrilled to announce New Work City as New York’s official venue and late-night home. (We <3 you!)
Here’s a high-five to all the ambitious and awesome people who have ventured out in the wee hours of the night to get together and get shit done. You rock. We heart you. Thanks to everyone who’s helped spread the word too.

Just start before worrying about finishing
What else went down at the first NY Nightowls meet-up?
Here’s what Ari, Aviary’s finest programmer / web developer, was working on late-night…
I hacked together a terrible implementation of a color palette bookmarklet. May get around to making it useful someday.
Just trying to get back into the habit of starting things before worrying about finishing them.

Great advice from Ari: Just start before worrying about finishing.
