Here are some photos of the facility at 160 Varick St. in Manhattan that was made available to our supporting member the NYU-Poly Generation NYC program, under Mayor Bloomberg's incubator initiative.
Before (March 2009)After (July 2009)
The photos show the space in raw condition six months ago and recently after fit-out, including furniture donated by Steelcase, a national office-furniture manufacturer with a subsidiary situated nearby at 200 Varick St. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.
The facility houses the NYU-Poly Commercialization Center at 160 Varick Street and NYC ACRE (Accelerator for a Clean and Renewable Economy) funded under a contract from NYSERDA announced earlier in the year by Gov. Paterson. Both programs are under the umbrella "Generation NYC" program at NYU-Poly.
UPDATE (7/30) — This same facility was just highlighted in The Huffington Post!
Here is a clickable map showing the locations of the nearly 50 incubators operated by the 38 current members of BIA/NYS. In some regions, incubators are close enough together that you cannot distinguish the pushpins unless you zoom in using the Google control. Clicking on a pushpin will reveal a box with a clickable link to the incubator profile on our website. Enjoy this service which will continue to be tuned.
