Looking for recommendations on a place anyone has used in Manhattan
for doing usability tests. I saw this question in the archive,
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=28337) but it had no replies.

Thanks.

Hi Nicholas,

What are your requirements? Do you need a special area for
observers, with a one-way mirror, etc., or do you just need space for
equipment, moderator and subject?

If the latter, you could try New Work City. They have a conference
room that would probably work. Otherwise you could set up in one
corner of their main loft area and bring in some freestanding
dividers for privacy.

We used Murray Hill Center in NYC a few years ago for paper prototype
tests and were pleased with their recruiting, facilities and service
overall.

I have worked with New York Focus on a number of occassions and have
had great results - http://www.newyorkfocus.com/new_york/home.htm.

I have also worked with Schlesinger Associates to a lesser extent as
well
-http://www.schlesingerassociates.com/locations/newyork_home.html.

Both facilities can recruit and have a variety of arrangements.

These guys are more aligned with Market research but I have heard
people who have used the more for usability type testing.

I've had good luck with:

Not a great site, but they did good recruiting and have good facilities.
