It’s been a huge few years for Kickstarter. The crowd-funding resource, itself something of a kickstarted group, went from relative obscurity to raising more money than the National Endowment for the Arts, winning awards like the Made in NY top prize. To cement their status as coolest and most cutting-edge, and most, you know, Internet, the company is packing up their Manhattan offices located in the Lower East Side and moving to the a former pencil factory in Greenpoint. It was probably only a matter of time; in five years every tech company that calls New York home will be in North Brooklyn. Mark my words. (Photo: Better Left Unsaid/Flickr)
