The entrepreneurs featured here weren’t just Web start-ups or service firms, either. Many even made and sold real products—clothing and cheese, for instance—right from their homes. Some of them, like Melissa Lanz, owner of The Fresh 20, had actually opened an office when she launched her business, but decided to close it when she recognized it as an unnecessary expense. “In six months, I visited the office five times,” she says. “It made me feel stupid.”

Have you ever walked past Union Square and wondered what that strange cosmic smoking hole is? Me too. Turns out that it’s called Metronome and it’s an art installation organized by the Public Art Fund on behalf of The Related Companies who developed the residential tower above it.
