Communal B&B


A postmodern update on living en famille, visitors to New York will soon be able to stay with a team of eight 20-something Brooklyn creatives for a taste of Big Apple counter-culture. 

Over the past year, the octuplet comprising of artists, singers, writers and designers have all been living together. Guest stays will also be managed by the same group in return for a minimal rate in a city where the average price for accommodation per night is $215.

$40 will cover a bunk in a hostel-style room while for $120-$140 you can expect something more private in a single or double room.

Accommodation fees will go directly to funding the cooperative's creative community and their activities. This new venture joins the trend of transforming domestic, private spaces into public and often billable environments from dining room restaurants to living room galleries.
