ERICA

DAVID
YEE

SINCE 2012

"I had heard for years about Small City, but I don't think I truly understood it until I joined. Small City is more than a coworking community. It's a family, a collaborative workspace, a network of talented professionals, and a home. Also: they gave me a slide whistle and tolerated its use."

MARK
DORISON

SINCE 2012

"I consider myself hashtag blessed to not only be included in a group such as Small City, but to call a great many of its members my dear friends."

MEG
LEWIS

SINCE 2012

"When I first moved to NYC I didn't know anyone. It only took meeting one Small City member before the whole group took me under their wing. This group is by far the most nurturing, supportive, loving group of people I've ever met and they've changed my life in so many ways. Don't be intimidated by the incredible talent inside this Small City; these people have hearts of gold. I'm happy to call them my family!"

ELLA
MERSHON

SINCE 2014

"Small City was a lifeline for me. Even though I was definitely the only person at Small City writing a dissertation on nineteenth-century literature (go figure!), I found the support, encouragement, and motivation I needed to see the project through. The amazing folks at Small City welcomed this stray academic into their fold, and, for that, I will be forever grateful."

MALLORY
BOX

SINCE 2015

"I spent more time at Small City than I did anywhere else in NYC. I ate all my meals there, watched movies, had drinks, took naps, listened to music, drank way too much coffee, laughed til my sides hurt, and occasionally did some work in the company of actual angels. The people of Small City are my kindred spirits. Their friendship is forever."

CORY
ETZKORN

SINCE 2015

"As a freelancer, I’d often find myself working long hours at home alone, trying to meet a deadline. Small City is the exact opposite! Here you’ll spend your days alongside the most talented and friendly folks. The space is amazing, but the community is what really makes it shine."

JOSH
SMITH

SINCE 2015

"I certainly can't put in words how much the people here mean to me. All I can say is that my life would not be the same had I not met the kind, smart, rIdiculously talented and truly good group of individuals that came together here. I'm lucky and thankful to call them my friends."

 

YANNELL
RODRIGUEZ

SINCE 2015

BEKKA
PALMER

SINCE 2011

"I had heard about this crew before moving to NYC and knew I wanted to be a part of it. I have never been so welcomed into a new community with such open arms (and hearts). The people of Small City introduced me to my closest friends and opened doors I never dreamed existed. Not only is it a very talented group, but every person there wants to help you succeed personally and professionally. This is my family in New York."

DAVE
DAWSON

SINCE 2012

"NYC is a big town, full of people, and it seems all roads lead back to Small City. Without these folks, my experience here would be dramatically different. I'm a pretty lucky guy to have fallen in with the right crowd."

NICOLE
FENTON

SINCE 2014

"These are the kindest, smartest colleagues a studiomate could ask for—and I am honored to call them my friends."
