Due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, Hack Manhattan regrets to inform our community that the space is CLOSED until further notice.
The space is closed to all members, guests of members, non-keyholding community members, and all visitors. Members are still able to unlock the space with the expectation that they are there to collect belongings and secure running projects and other affairs. Please use the Slack to record your presence for coordination.
We continue to maintain our community online through the mailing lists and Slack. We also intend on holding regularly scheduled videoteleconference sessions (likely during the same times as the open nights) for community members to hang and chill. Video not required. Please see the Slack for more information.
Hack Manhattan is a non-profit, all-volunteer hackerspace in New York City. Our space is a place for people to come together and socialize, work on projects, and share knowledge. We welcome anyone interested in art, craft, and technology – whether you’re interested in electronics or gardening, textiles or 3D printing, we invite you to come, work, and be part of the community.
We are open to the public whenever a member is present. First-time visitors are encouraged to attend one of our Open House events, held every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00PM until late. Open Houses have members giving tours and introductions to the space and tools and are an excellent way to get oriented and meet people. Bring your project or start a new one! We are located at 137 West 14th st, between Sixth and Seventh Avenue. Convenient trains are the A, C, E, F, M, L, N, R, Q, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
In addition to the Open House nights, Hack Manhattan holds a variety of workshops, classes, and events.
Recurring events include a monthly Shakespeare reading and a monthly repair session with the Fixer’s Collective, while past classes have ranged from a 3D printer build to introductory sewing.
For a full list of upcoming events, please see our Meetup page where you can also sign up to be notified of future ones.
If you need it, we’ve got it. If we don’t got it, we’ll get it. Or make it.
Our equipment includes, but is not limited to:
Hack Manhattan is a member-supported organization. Membership dues go directly to rent, utilities, and the occasional equipment purchase. If you’d like to join us (or make a donation), we’d love to have you. Dues are $100/mo, or $50/mo for student/starving/unemployed hackers.
Because we’re building a community, plus the fact that members get 24/7 access, storage, and the right to vote on decisions that affect the space, we want to get to know you first - we ask that you visit us a few times to make sure it’s a good fit. Full details are on the wiki MembershipInfo page.
