The Wing is flying into Brooklyn

The Wing is flying into Brooklyn

After a successful inaugural year in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, the women-only social club and co-working space The Wing is expanding to Soho, Washington D.C., and—in welcome news to the club’s Brooklyn-dwelling residents—a waterfront space at the Clocktower Building, cementing Dumbo’s status as a creative hub that happens to have the best views of the city.

Billed as a “throne away from home” for busy women, The Wing was founded by Audrey Gelman and Lauren Kassan as a quick pit stop for women shuttling between work and home, a place to do some work and maybe grab a healthy bite, yet has grown into a robust community with 700 members and an 8,000-person waitlist eager to pay the $215 monthly or $2,250 annual membership fees. That sense of community explains the need for a new location, set to open in January 2018.

More on why The Wing is a perfect fit for Brooklyn, in my latest story at The Bridge.
