Walkabout NYC Tours Hot NY Startups Offices

Portfolio.com‘s John Harrison attended Walkabout NYC, a city-wide startup open house during Internet Week NY, and recently detailed his experience.  The tour started at the Midtown offices of Hashable and Tapad, where visitors were able to stroll around the open workspace filled with barefoot employees.  Continuing down to Noho, the tour was welcomed at the Meetup offices with Sangria, visited the more traditional headquarters of Blip.tv and Sawhorse Media, and saw the home of AOL Ventures.

The tour then proceeded to the SoHo offices of Thrillist, complete with a fully stocked bar, and the dog-friendly Patch headquarters.  Next was Gawker Media’s offices, which was described as “eerily dark” with the exception of a bright orange surfboard on display.  The tour wrapped up at WeWork Labs, where early-stage startups, developers and entrepreneurs enjoy a simple workspace filled with sunlight and decorative robots.
