The Center's New Space

Greatly enlarged, the Business & Career Center serves job seekers, freelancers and small business owners. The space includes custom-designed wood counter seating, four meeting rooms ​equipped with presentation screens, six conversation “nooks,” a co-working area with laptops available for loan, and two seminar rooms with built-in/automated presentation equipment. The Center connects, via a new glass-enclosed staircase, to the Shelby White & Leon Levy Information Commons on the first floor. Funding for the new Business & Career Center was provided by Empire State Development.
