To get to WeWork Labs: As you're facing 175 Varick Street look to your left and you'll see Charlton Street. The entrance to WeWork is on Charlton Street. You'll enter through a black door that says WeWork on it, go straight up several steps and go through another door. Then, you'll see the elevators to your left. Go to the 4th floor. The Meetup sign in desk will be right there as you exit the elevator.
