Co-living spaces, dorms if you will, for post-college folks looking for a communal living environment.
…All of this seemed very far away on a Sunday night this winter, in the basement of a renovated four-story brownstone in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. The building, Kennedys new home, is run by the co-living startup Common, which offers what it calls flexible, community-driven housing. Co-living has also been billed as dorms for grown-ups, a description that Common resists. But the company has set out to restore a certain subset of young, urban professionals to the paradise they lost when they left college campusesa furnished place to live, unlimited coffee and toilet paper, a sense of belonging.
