If you haven’t tried coworking before, you may be unfamiliar with the credits system that many providers use (including The Yard). 

Memberships of all kinds come with credits that make booking out a variety of spaces according to your needs more flexible. 

For example, the open space monthly membership gives you 8 credits that can be used on meeting rooms. The hybrid monthly membership also allots credits that can be used on meeting rooms, conference rooms, different Yard brand locations, and private offices. 

This allows you to store a reserve and dip into it when you need to. If this sounds a bit complicated for you, don’t worry – you can always use the pay-by-the-day option as well.

The Yard has a reputation for its artistic interiors. Check out pictures of the Manhattan space here

Final Recommendations

I would recommend taking a tour or purchasing a day pass before committing to a membership so that you can make sure that the space is right for you!

Also, be sure to check the locations of your chosen coworking space for nearby parking and/or public transport before purchasing a subscription. 

Sometimes, certain spaces look to be in a prime location but take longer to reach due to the proximity of public transport options!
