NYI has announced a community partnership with the Alliance for Downtown New York's (ADNY) Lower Manhattan HQ (LMHQ), a collaboration space for Lower Manhattan's creatives and creators. NYI's New York City facility is located in the heart of Lower Manhattan and as such the company is dedicated to uniting the community to continue to advance the neighborhood and create a world-class destination for business and innovation.

Lower Manhattan is not only New York's oldest neighborhood, it is the capital of finance and home to a growing number of creative, cutting-edge companies responsible for pushing the boundaries of innovation in their respective industries. The neighborhood has provided the ideal location for NYI's primary data center and company headquarters at 100 William Street, enabling strategic connectivity advantages to all major exchanges, peering networks and international fiber backbones. Through its partnership with LMHQ, NYI is able to connect and collaborate with over 800 tech firms and startups, major brands, agencies and media companies and will be offering special pricing on services to fellow LMHQ members.

"NYI has been a proud member of the Lower Manhattan community since we opened our doors in 1996, which made our partnership with LMHQ a natural fit," states Phil Koblence, chief operating officer of NYI. "We're dedicated to helping our communities and customers grow, from tech startups to financial services companies; the FreeBSD community to our peers at LMHQ, through fully customized, scalable and flexible solutions. Our mission-critical data services, as well as becoming an extension of our customers' teams, enable us to provide the services and support companies require to grow."

"We are excited to welcome NYI on as one of our founding members," said LMHQ director Daria Siegel. "At LMHQ, we are building a community of innovative organizations and individuals who see collaboration as central to accelerating their growth. NYI shares our core values and we look forward to working together to build programming that supports companies in their development."
