Help TIME’S UP! Find a Permanent Space

We need your help to find Time’s Up! a new permanent home!

Our old indoor space at 49 E. Houston Street was recently sold and we are currently holding our bike repair workshops in a temporary space. Time’s Up! is actively searching for a new permanent space that will allow us to continue our indoor meetings and educational events. Having a permanent Time’s Up! space is essential in plugging people into these events and making a difference in the community.

If you’d like to help, our Space Committee meets every second Monday of the month at 7:30pm at 156 Rivington St–join us!! Or, if you have any ideas or leads, email:

The Time’s Up! indoor space was located in downtown Manhattan at 49 East Houston Street. This first floor, inviting storefront helped Time’s Up! with its outreach to the community.

The space generated hundreds of new volunteers for Time’s Up!

In turn these volunteers have made a serious environmental impact with community building and advocating for sustainable non-polluting transportation.

Educational Workshops for School Children

The old Time’s Up! space brought volunteers together for large meetings and smaller committee meetings, as well as collaborations with other environmental and community groups.

We presented educational movies every Thursday and had more than 100 indoor educational workshops a year.

All of these events were supervised by Time’s Up! instructors and were free of charge.

Workshops included instructive courses on how people can fix and maintain their bicycles including a women’s only night, beginners welding, gardening, textile, banner and puppet workshops and video editing. During our four years at Time’s Up!’s Houston Street space, more than 6,000 people attended our workshops.


And The Band Played On...
Party Time to Relax at the Space

The Time’s Up! space was essential in plugging people into these events and making a difference in the community.


Time’s Up! is seeking a large space that would allow for mixed use–including meetings, office space, movie nights, bicycle repair workshops, and puppet and banner workshops–preferably a first floor, welcoming location with a basement we can use for bicycle workshops.

Location is key for volunteer support. Our last three spaces have had great success in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and, ideally, we would love to continue working in this neighborhood. We are also considering the potential of relocating to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, or nearby. We also welcome other ideas.
