#HUBDAY New York City Recap!

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been working with Leandro to make sure that we had a space locked down for Hub Day in New York after having two different hosts cancel on us twice. We wanted to make sure that we were providing the community with a beautiful space with great lighting in order to give them the best experience possible. We actually almost forgot to tell anyone about the event.

When I arrived on the evening of the event – about fifteen minutes early – I did a head count of everyone outside. Forty-five attendees, and we hadn’t even opened the doors. Halfway through the event, when we were barricaded behind a crowd of our members trying to get the perfect shot in the space, I saw the owner of the space, Sandra, losing her mind. Much like me, she had substantially underestimated the turnout. I had a short talk with Sandra, who was astounded that we could have such a successful evening event without a drop of alcohol.

Something that continuously surprises me is the purity of the community we have. I didn’t tell anyone that we couldn’t have alcohol at the space, and no one asked – everyone was so focused on getting to the event and meeting their friends, listening to what Leandro was saying, and shooting their faces off.

Below are just a few of our favorite images taken at #HUBDAY New York City. Comment below and let us know if you think we should do it again!
