In October, Common opened its first flagship home on Pacific Street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Since then, the 19 members living there hosted almost 10 potluck dinners, attended a few Daybreakers, started a book club, arranged movie nights, and helped Common craft a better experience for rental living in NYC and beyond.
Today we’re opening our second Home in Crown Heights, a few blocks down the street from our Pacific flagship. It’s slightly smaller than our first, with 10 total members across three suites. But it’s no less special, and we’re excited to welcome our new members this month.
Our Common Albany home ground floor is a comfy living room, a custom made farm table, and a large kitchen for cooking together while overlooking the garden.
Members at Common Albany enjoy beautiful home essentials from Snowe, and gorgeous furniture and lighting again from West Elm, Restoration Hardware and Bryght. We also teamed up with Milne, in the Hudson Valley, to design a custom made farm table, cellar desk, and rooftop daybed, as well as sourcing some wonderful Hudson Valley antique furniture for our kitchens and garden.
Common Albany has the same warm feeling, cool patterns and Americana artwork as Common Pacific.
Exposed brick, timber floorboards, and great sunlight; everything we love.
The Game Room
While Common Pacific has a dining hall, our Common Albany (Avenue) home has a game room.
There is a 55” TV and Chromecast for movie nights, PS4, PacMan Arcade Machine (which is absolutely addictive), and a stack of great boardgames. Play or watch movie next to the LED fireplace.
As part of our collaboration with Daybreaker, artist-in-residence Elliott LaRue will be living in our Common Albany flagship home. We’re excited to have him as part of our community. As part of his residency, he’ll help introduce our members to the best of NYC. Our artist in residence is a wealth of knowledge in the NYC creative scene and can provide awesome recommendations and ideas for the community.
