68 Jay St. #405, Part I
What was the office?
In June of 2020, after months of remote work due to Covid, and with no sign of rent relief and no change in the state of public health on the horizon, n+1 moved out of our office in Brooklyn. This departure echoed a larger trend during the pandemic—the flight of white collar work from office spaces to bedrooms—and, at least for now, the end of offices as we’ve known them.
For over a decade, n+1 was operated out of a single room in DUMBO, Brooklyn: 68 Jay Street, #405. We asked our staff, editors, and authors, past and present, for their recollections of the space, to collectively tell a (slightly less brief) history of yet another small office. This is Part I; Part II is here.
