Dear Shiners,

After 15 adventurous years, Sunshine Suites has officially closed it's doors.

We want to thank all of you for your support and hope our business served as a stepping stone as a place where your start up grew up.

Sunshine was formed in 2001, with a vision of helping small businesses avoid the many pitfalls to startup failure, that included unfavorable lease terms, high overhead, limited access to business resources, and a closed environment without the opportunity to meet and network with other entrepreneurs and business owners.  We envisioned a place of opportunity where strangers came alone but left as friends, collaborators, or business partners, working towards mutually beneficial outcomes.

Over the years, thousands of freelancers, entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses called Sunshine Suites home.  Utilizing our physical space filled with diverse businesses and a variety of office solutions and services to our members, which we affectionately refer to as Shiners, we tried to give them the resources, environment, and guidance to fast track them to success.

Looking back, we take great pride in knowing that our hard work, vision, and dedication to startups helped countless businesses.  Sunshine was one of the pioneers of collaborative office space.  As we close this chapter, we look back with a great sense of pride and wish all those who we had the privilege to work with success and good fortune.

Finally, we would like to thank our employees, partners, vendors, and the NYC startup community.

Thank you,

The Sunshine Team
