Nobody truly understands just how crushing the gap between expectation and reality can be until they tried to launch their own start-up.

For the most people, it goes something like a Facebook meme. You know, the ones with the captions “What I thought I would do” (insert a picture of Google headquarters here) on the left, and “What I really do” (insert an image of your dad’s garage here) on the right.

Let’s be real here: When it comes to renting an office space, nothing tops Manhattan’s Midtown district. If you can afford paying $75 per square foot—the median rent in the area—then by all means, go for it and enjoy that fancy Avenue of Americas corporate address.

But if your business plan calls for cheaper rent then, perhaps, you should look into outer boroughs.

Case in point: Brooklyn’s Bushwick. This up and coming neighborhood has officially been declared the new mecca for young creative individuals. And while apartment rents in Bushwick are rapidly increasing, you can still grab a commercial space there for literally half the Midtown price—the median asking rent for office spaces there is just $39 per square foot.

Here at Agorafy we browsed through our Brooklyn commercial spaces and compiled a list of our favorite office listings in Bushwick. You know, just until that angel investor will make your Avenue of Americas dream happen.
