ABOUT BEAHIVE

Why is BEAHIVE spelled funny? It’s a cute reference to Beacon, NY (BEA-HIVE, Bea-con…). Beacon is the quaint river town in the Hudson Valley that has been bubbling with potential since the renowned contemporary art museum Dia:Beacon moved in.

The original BEAHIVE opened in May 2009 right in the heart of Beacon’s Main Street in an artisan-renovated 1907 Bell Telephone building. We’ve swarmed additional hives in Kingston (since closed), Downtown Albany, and Peekskill (since closed).

Inspired in part by the coworking and Localism movements, BEAHIVE is a new kind of collaborative space for work and community, the only of its kind in the Hudson Valley. At the most basic level, we provide a shared, creative work environment for entrepreneurs, the creative class, microbusinesses and consultants.

WHAT IS COWORKING?

Quite simply, coworking is a new way to work. It’s a growing worldwide movement in collaboration, where people work in a shared space, alone and together.

VISION

We’re more than a shared workspace. We’re a rich community of members with a desire to improve our professional and personal lives and our community.

We’re driven by the dream of a localist Hudson Valley economy that is sustainable, locally rooted and human scale and supports communities that are vibrant, diverse and inclusive.

See our vision of the positive impact we can have.
