Working from home sounds great but after a while it can get lonely and boring. You start to miss the camaraderie of the office and you notice your days are much more productive when you get out of the house and work at a coffee shop. While cafes can be great workplaces they start to feel like you should move on after a few hours. Co-working spaces combine all of the best thing about working in an office and try to remove the negatives. Here are our choices for the top 75 in the U.S.

#4 New Work City, New York, New York
Leaving behind traditional employment is becoming increasingly normal, but it doesn't seem that way. The moment you decide to strike out on your own, you become responsible for everything. You don't necessarily have a lot of help, or people to bounce things off of. To forge your own path is a great thing, but doing it alone can be hard.
While having a space to work in is a critical component to the process, New Work City recognizes that we're gathering not because we need space, but because we want to be around people we get along with. While that could happen anywhere, coworking spaces provide a consistent and reliable place you can count on to welcome you with open arms any time.
Coworking gives us a way to work on our own things while still feeling like we're part of something bigger than ourselves. Feeling like you can commute to a place where people you know will be working and excited to see you can be a really, really good feeling. By forming communities around our shared needs, we create opportunities to help each other. Someone else's weakness is another's strength; together we are far more than the sum of our parts.
New Work City wanted to take all of the good parts about the office spaces we used to occupy, but leave behind all of the sucky parts. They wanted to make a workplace that you would feel excited to visit every day.
They built a place where who you are matters more than what you do. They discovered that when they gave people a chance to develop authentic relationships with each other in a natural way, people's lives and businesses end up thriving as a result.
M-F memberships with a locker are $375 per month.

Some telecommute to bigger companies on the other side of the country or the other side of the world. Some are startups, starting growth-minded companies with dreams of a big exit, while some are using their skills simply to earn a living.
Like a gym for freelancers and entrepreneurs. You can set up your desk in your living room, just like you can set up a treadmill, but really how much fun is working or working out alone? Working alone kinda sucks. Just think for a moment what it could create for you business if you spent even a few days a week in an environment where everyone around you was also working on their business.
We are smarter as a collective. You may have noticed that talking with other entrepreneurial types leads to insights that leap your business forward or blow out blockages. They have a wide variety of businesses in the NextSpace coworking community. Coders, web designers & developers, branding designers, social media strategists, intellectual property lawyers, nonprofits protecting the environment, people changing cancer research and protecting privacy on the web, experts in building websites for small businesses, landscape designers, just to name a few.
