Sharing Is Caring: Co-Living In Brooklyn

Sharing Is Caring: Co-Living In Brooklyn

Kibbutzim are out and communal capitalism is in. New developments in some of Brooklyn’s hottest neighborhoods mean you can head on home to shared housing that will compliment your WeWork lifestyle to a T.

Common offers housing in chic spots from Crown Heights to Williamsburg. Rooming in The Baltic in Boerum Hill goes for $2,150 per month, while you can rest your head in Williamsburg for $2,050. Common’s housing is available for six and 12 month leases.

Node Brooklyn is a rapidly expanding competitor, though many of its options are just in the process of opening or haven’t quite done so yet.

Pure House is another co-living option, though the application process is a bit… different. Stays can be as short as 30 days, per the New York Times.

Flatbush has at least one co-living space of its own, provided by Outpost. Stays are also for a minimum of 30 days. If those weren’t enough options, you could always ruminate on Dwell’s offerings.

It’s outfitted with a kitchen bar, a dishwasher, ample space and light, large closets, and the perfect sharing arrangement — one king-sized bedroom and one queen. Rent is $3,475 per month and Lenny Grodin of GPA Realty has the details.
