A first visit to Harlem Collective
Something is a-brewing in Harlem. Last week, team Croissant headed uptown to check out a brand new coworking space in Hamilton Heights. Harlem Collective started out with a simple but bold vision in mind. The founders sought to create a space to collaborate in Harlem. We had a chance to speak with Alex Tseng, community manager at Harlem Collective. "There is a diverse group of creative people in Harlem, but no go-to place that helps them thrive."
Harlem Collective seeks to be a place where Harlem residents can connect with and help each other. The founder is an inventor, and there are many innovative startups that work from here. Alex was the second tenant at Harlem Collective and helps out as a volunteer community manager. However, he spends most of his time on STREETSEED. His company STREETSEED is an innovative architecture lab and full-service real estate design firm. As Design Director, he keeps busy designing commercial projects around the world.
Bandhub, a music collaboration platform, also has set up shop at Harlem Collective. Bandhub connects musicians worldwide, and together they can create "collabs". Pablo Osinaga, co-founder and CEO of Bandhub, enjoys having “a quiet space to do work.”

There is a feeling of rawness at Harlem Collective. The exposed brick walls set a comfortable, familiar vibe. The modern decor give it that industrial lofty feel. We’re excited to watch Harlem Collective fill up with members of New York City's creative community.
