The tech explosion has rocked the New York City economy, bringing in new jobs and expertise. Union Square and the Flatiron District are at the very heart of the industry’s growth in the City. To support these businesses, the Union Square Partnership and the Flatiron Partnership sponsored one of General Assembly’s weekly happy hours, for members of the coding power house. Tech companies have had a major impact on the neighborhood, driving the commercial vacancy rate down to 2.9% – the lowest of any New York City market according to Ash Zandieh, Director of TechStarter at ABS Partners.
