Where did you grow up?

We both grew up in downtown Manhattan– Maggie in Tribeca, Anny in Noho.

What brought you (back) to New York?

NYC beckoned us back after college.

What do you do for a living?

We run Welcome Workshop together on the side. Anny is a studio manager and Maggie is an art director.

How did you get started?

Still starting! Always starting…

What are your favorite things about your neighborhood?

We split our time between downtown Manhattan, Boerum Hill, and Gowanus to run the studio. We can be found snacking (depending on the neighborhood) at Gimme Coffee, Han’s Deli, Hampton Chutney, Konditori, Bedouin Tent, Michael & Ping’s and 4&20 Blackbirds.

What’s the last treasure you found?

Our rooftop studio!

If you were going to eat your last meal in New York, where and what would you eat?

Noho Star – the restaurant that has been both our families’ staple since birth.

If you could have a sleepover with anyone who has ever existed, who would it be?

Ming Lin and Micheal Leung – both currently living in HK, our favorite sleepover mates.

If your life was a TV show, what would be the theme song?

Neon Lights by Kraftwerk

What does New York need that it doesn’t have now?

More internet cafes, jk…. Safe bike lanes, rent regulation.
