Heather Isiminger

Events Manager

A regular day at work looks like giving a walk-through of W83 and having a chance to show people the space, responding to inquiries, scheduling logistics for upcoming events, fielding questions from guests when they’re here, drafting contracts, checking in with event guests and giving out subway directions and painter’s tape on demand. What I really enjoy the most is having the opportunity to work with people directly, see what the vision is for their special event and then helping to make that vision come to life at W83. No two events are ever the same, and since we’re a multi-use space, there are often multiple events happening in the building at the same time. I like the fun and unique challenge of making everyone feel welcome while making sure everything is running smoothly. When we have a busy day at W83, with anything from weddings, to concerts, to classes, there’s this great buzz of energy that fills the space and you feel like you’re really connected to a larger community and the creativity of New York City.
