BCL Supports Four Local Businesses During its 10-Year Anniversary Month

Increase Efficiency with These 5 Tips for Team Building (10).png

This past April 15th, Brooklyn Creative League celebrated its 10-year anniversary. Our anniversary afforded us a rare opportunity to take stock of where we have been and look forward to where we hope to go.

As a coworking space that’s rooted in the community, we wanted to express our gratitude to everyone who has been a part of BCL’s journey over the past decade: members, current and past; business partners; and fellow small-businesses in our Gowanus neighborhood. Looking forward, we also wanted to nurture the seeds of our future growth as a foundry for community capitalism. So we decided to sponsor a month of events that celebrated BCL’s unique community—past and present—while also supporting the local businesses that will drive our growth in the coming years.

Below is a glimpse at just some of events and parties we sponsored throughout our month-long anniversary celebration. Thank you for helping us build a business that is a joy to run. Thank you for helping us demonstrate that you can build a solid business on the values of trust, good will, and mutual benefit. May our next 10 be as satisfying as the last 10 have been!

With deepest gratitude,

Erin & Neil

Beer Tasting

Just a few blocks away from BCL is Threes Brewing, a Brooklyn-based brewery with a tap-room and event-space right here in Gowanus. A group of members attended a private beer tasting, selecting from pale ales, IPAs, pilsners and more.

Gowanus Walking Tour

Author and journalist, Joseph Alexiou, led a Historical Walking Tour of Gowanus for those who were interested. As a tour guide for Brooklyn Brainery, Alexiou is a lover of history with a passion for Gowanus, who wrote the book: Gowanus: Brooklyn’s Curious Canal.

Pie Party!

Gowanus is also home to Four and Twenty Blackbirds, a quaint pie bakery located a few blocks north of BCL on 3rd avenue. Featured in Bon Apetit, Time Out New York, and Travel & Leisure, it’s a must-visit pie shop in Brooklyn.

Members were treated to a pie-tasting during lunch and got to sample from the likes of salted caramel apple (a classic), lemon chess, black bottom oat, and more.

Celebration Party!

We held a celebratory bash at Littlefield, a performance and art space here in Gowanus. It was great to see so many members come together to have a good time. We ate, drank, played games, and took plenty of photos.
