Our team works with Microsoft Research‘s NYC Lab at 6th Ave and 20th Street. In just the last few months, two new civic tech institutions have opened up shop on our block. Just down West 20th Street, Data & Society considers the social, ethical, and cultural implications of data-driven decisions. And Civic Hall recently opened its doors at 156 5th Ave. It’s already home to countless great civic tech organizations, startups, and members, including our partners at BetaNYC and New York Tech Meetup. Not to mention that DataKind‘s in the same building, and one block up is DoSomething.org. It’s a great time to be in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. Stop by to visit whenever you’re around or in town!
