What we're about

Hack Manhattan is located on 137 West 14th Street between Union Square and Chelsea. We are dedicated to technology, art and craft. Our open nights are every Tuesday and Thursday. Drop by to hang out and chat or work on projects using our equipment. Everyone is encouraged to bring a project to work on! If another day suits you better, even if there isn't a scheduled meetup event, guests are welcome to visit our space and use the facilities whenever a member is present!

A lot of our activities have focused on electronics and 3D printing, but we also have a machine shop with a lathe and a mill, sewing machines, gardening and even a beehive on the roof.

Most community activity happens on our Slack (https://hackmanhattan.slack.com/), which you can join with this link (https://join.slack.com/t/hackmanhattan/shared_invite/enQtMzYzNzc3NTc1NTIwLTQ4ZDU5NWJjMzY0Y2ZiOTY0OTVhNWY1OWI3NzlhZWVkMjk0ZTQwMjdiN2EwNWVlZTgwNDljZWUwYjVjMzYyNDc).

Come hang out, or bring a project to work on with our tools. Visitors are strongly encouraged to bring a project to work on, or at least a laptop.

Some Themed Thursdays may be Electronics Night, a more structured study group that focuses on various topics in electronics.
