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

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.
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.
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.
