Modern Manhattan has always been considered the bustling heart of New York’s most prominent financial, commercial, and cultural centers in the country. As such, it is also the most densely populated in the U. S. Because of this, the region attracts business people of all types, sizes, and origins. But for some, Manhattan has remained an elusive fantasy. The fact is that opening up shop in Manhattan can be akin to owning Boardwalk or Park Place while playing Monopoly. And everyone knows that is just like playing the lotto or winning at a dice game.
However, there is a way for any business to at least court clients and network with like-minded visionaries. For instance, an acquaintance of mine decided to set about making pilgrimages into Manhattan on a regular basis. He would watch Priceline for the best deals on hotels – often staying in Brooklyn or another burrow and then taking the subway into town.
He tries to go to every industry related event he can. He wanted to stage a mixer but lamented that the hotels cost a fortune and most require huge deposits. He wanted to do some informal stuff but also have technology available to make some presentations, but hotels could not accommodate him.
When I told him about Davinci’s conference rooms he was as shocked as I was to learn that they could be had in Manhattan for as little as $15 an hour. I really don’t know a bargain quite like that when it comes to business, especially anywhere near, let alone right in the heart of New York City. There he is able to get everything he needs – literally from soup to nuts (they also cater). This makes that bastion of wealth known as Manhattan there for the taking by any entrepreneur with the mind set to make it happen!
