What we're about

Hack Manhattan (https://hackmanhattan.com/) 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 discussion mailing list "Blabber" (https://list.hackmanhattan.com/), as well as our Slack (https://hackmanhattan.slack.com/). Our Slack is invite-only at the moment, but we're always happy to get new people in! If you want to join us there, please email info@hackmanhattan.com !
