A New Type Of Work Environment: BEAHIVE!

As Hudson Valley Etsy continues to branch out and network with other local organizations, we'd like to let you in on a great place that provides work/meeting space in the Hudson Valley.


Inspired in part by the coworking movement, BEAHIVE is a new kind of collaborative space for work and community, the only of its kind in the Hudson Valley. At the most basic level, we provide a shared, creative work environment for entrepreneurs, the creative class, microbusinesses and consultants.

Quite simply, coworking is a new way to work. It’s a growing worldwide movement in collaboration, where people work in a shared space, alone and together.


We’re more than a shared office space — and more than a space to work. BEAHIVE is a community, a community of members from diverse backgrounds with a range of talents and a desire to improve our professional and personal lives and our community. We have a few levels of membership so you can be a part of the community at the commitment level that works for you.

Ultimately we’re supporting a Local Living Economy, one that is vibrant, sustainable, locally rooted and human-scale.

Why is BEAHIVE spelled funny? It’s a cute reference to Beacon (BEA-HIVE, Bea-con…). Scott Tillitt opened the original BEAHIVE in May 2009 right in the heart of Beacon’s Main Street in an artisan-renovated 1907 Bell Telephone building. We added a second in Kingston later that winter (closed in spring 2012) and a third hive in Downtown Albany in early 2012.

Lovely old building and rooms, yet very comfortable for our needs.
