scareThere was a bomb scare around 25th Street and Broadway near Jay-z’s 40/40 club this morning as we heard a suspicious package with wires and a flashing light was next to a phone booth outside the club.

The NYPD explosives team and NYFD were on hand in numbers, and a controlled explosion of what seems to have been the package was carried out around 8:45am.

The bomb was ruled a fake, and there is video footage of the person placing the package. If you recognize this person, call the police.

the yard signThe Yard Flatiron workspace is now open, and after a tour, MadParkNews liked it so much that we immediately moved our headquarters to an office in the building.

The Yard took over most of the building at 234 5th Avenue and 27th Street, and after a gut renovation job designed by architect David Bers, opened its doors this month to creative professionals, entrepreneurs, startups, and anyone else who wants a turnkey private office or coworking desk in a cool environment. featuring exposed brick, rotating contemporary art, happy hour events, and of course, free coffee. (They even get occasional deliveries of Birch’s Cold Brew jugs!)

There are 88 private office suites ready to go with natural light, desks, ergonomic chairs, desk lamps, file cabinets, wifi and ethernet. Members also can use the conference rooms, printers, and phone booths and leases are month-to-month for ultimate flexibility.

the yard nomad3It’s been awesome so far for MadParkNews to be in the modern new space around others working hard on their businesses and startups. If you are in a dingy space or working from home, definitely check out The Yard.

Mark it down – They will be having an open house on Thursday, October 24th, from Noon-5pm, so stop on by. And they are giving 20% off the first month’s rent if you mention MadParkNews! If you can’t make it on the 24th, they tell me you can schedule a private tour and still get the 20% discount by mentioning that you read about it on MadParkNews. If you do join, come on by and maybe MadParkNews can write something up about your business.
