Best Cubicle Rental

Green Desk, in Dumbo, is committed to sustainability (with coffee included).  
  • Green Desk

    155 Water St., nr. Anchorage Pl., Dumbo; 718-210-3650;

    When it comes to the basics, Green Desk finds a happy medium between the two office-rental extremes (generic and grim vs. slick and expensive). But there’s much more than good looks to recommend this space. The smallest open cubicle ($375 per month) enjoys the same amenities as the biggest corner office ($4,500): free Wi-Fi connectivity, a receptionist to direct visitors, access to conference rooms, and a shared kitchen. Those longing for human interaction can cast about for a new work best friend among the various entrepreneurs (filmmakers, website designers, lawyers, TV producers, perfumers, etc.) who have set up shop. On top of everything else, the owners have made a serious commitment to sustainability—all four floors are wind-powered and have energy-efficient lighting and free organic-coffee stations, and a recycling program means you may end up in an ergonomic chair formerly occupied by a Wall Street titan.
