A group of three Astorians are planning to open a communal work space early next year for freelancers, entrepreneurs, and stay-at-home employees in the area. According to the NY Daily News, one of the organizers and at-home software developer, Nelson Ramirez said, “You can only go to a Starbucks so many days a week before you get sick of it. The demographics here would support the idea.” The other two in the group are Ramirez’s wife, Jessica Ramirez, and her sister Katie Walsh.
The three are planning a space similar to Brooklyn and Manhattan co-working floors. According to Ramirez and other founders and entrepreneurs in the area, there is a high demand for this kind of space, and people expect this new project to spur business development in the area.
