By Public Transport:
Our location is conveniently near the 2nd Street stop on the Market Frankford Subway Line, which provides easy cross-town access. We're also very close to stops on several Septa bus routes through Old City Philadelphia.
If cycling is your preferred mode of transportation, there is ample on-street lockable bike parking as well as limited indoor bike storage.
There are several pay-per-day parking lots within a block of Indy Hall, with fees ranging from $8-20 per day depending on your time of entry and the day of the week.
There is often on-street parking as well, but BE CAREFUL when reading parking signage and be sure to set a timer if you need to feed your meter during the day. You may find free parking, just be mindful of time limits.

I'd like to rent Indy Hall for a meeting. What's that going to cost?
First thing is first: have you visited Indy Hall, yet? We're a bit different from the usual office/event space, so it's important that you stop by to see how things work before you jump into planning how you use our space.
All of our memberships include use of our shared spaces (including conference rooms), but if you're looking for space and not membership, we might not be the best fit for you.
That said, some people have found what they're looking for on www.phillyspacefinder.com.

I make a lot of phone calls for work - is Indy Hall the place for me?
That depends - how would you feel about working next to yourself on the phone all day?

Can I use Indy Hall as my business address?
We're not a virtual office, nor do we live to sort mail. We'd like to work alongside of you, not your neglected Cat Fancy subscription.
You're welcome to list us as your business address, but you have to promise to pick up your mail often!
I have an event that I'd like to host at Indy Hall. How can I do that?

I'm looking for rock-star talent to help me on a project. Can Indy Hall forward me some names and resumes?
Looking to link-up with ridiculously talented independents in Philly? Join our community, spend some time working here on your thing, and build sincere relationships along the way. If you're only looking to stuff your rolodex, however, we're probably not the right place for you to be.
