A Place to Be

As parents in New York City we are both surrounded by people and isolated. While more and more interactions happen online, we become disconnected from the world around us. The Great Room is a unique place where parents and caregivers can seek out or simply bump into their community. There is always something going on - all are welcome.

Flexible Support

We know as parents no day is ever the same, whether itโ€™s our kids likes, the support we need or the challenges we face. The Great Room is a dynamic space open to all, focused on answering the communityโ€™s needs and providing a safe place to explore, find solace and share joy.





Community Drop-in Time

Connect with your community in our gorgeous 1000 square foot living room and backyard. You will have access to free coffee, tea, books, lists of local resources, a work space, a play space for kids; and rotating calendar of experts to consult with informally.


Classes and Workshops

 We offer something for your whole family including birthing, breastfeeding, music, art, writing classes, camps, kid and teen groups and more. Let us know if you want something we don't have listed! Click on a class in our calendar to learn more and register.




On the weekends and on select weekday evenings we host all sorts of events designed to bring our community together. Our Wednesday evening events are FREE. Our space is also available to rent for parties, workshops, and more!
