Gowanus' Room 58 Preview on Wednsday

We've written about Room 58 before, but it's having it's grand opening celebration on Wednesday (5/23) from 7PM-9PM. The venture, which is a shared space for writers, and one of a handful of its kind in Brooklyn, is part of the Brooklyn Artists Gym, which is located at 168 7th Street and very convenient to the Fourth Avenue Station of the F Train or the R and M. It's part of a small, but growing, trend of providing writers and others who might work at home an environment in which to rent some desk space, wireless access and other amenities. From the Room 58 description:

In a corner of Brooklyn Artists Gym's shared studio space for visual artists is Room 58, a new workspace designed specifically for journalists and other research-based writers. Behind the door marked 58 are actually two rooms, an outer office area with desks, fax, printer, research materials and file storage, and an inner quiet room with eight individual cubicles and a couple of nice views of Manhattan.
"For some of our writers, telephone work is essential to what they do," writes Scott Adkins, co-founder of Park Slope's popular Brooklyn Writers Space (BWS) and partner in the new Room 58/BAG venture, in an email. "BWS is a great quiet environment for writers of all genres. But for those writers who also need traditional office capabilities, Room 58 is ideal.
