Hey folks, what are your favorite qualitative research labs and resources in NYC? Saw an old thread for this with lots of broken links - also include resource links if there's a thread that I'm not seeing that has a solid list.
They can include any and all of these:
- screening + recruiting
- on-site facilities for 1:1 and/or focus groups

I am new to the field of IxD and would greatly appreciate a mentorship with an experienced designer. I know that the IxDA branches in Boston and L.A. have already started mentorship programs but, as far as I can tell, the NYC branch has not.
Are there any senior Interaction Designers who would be interested in mentoring?
IxDA NYC is pleased to present two bodystorming workshops with Dennis
Schleicher on Saturday, August 7th. Bodystorming is a participatory method for demonstrating or
developing ideas in a physical setting. Team members will explore

give a sense of place.
IxDA co-founder David Malouf and guests Ted Booth and Jennifer Bove engage the NYC community in a discussion of the state of interaction design. Topics covered include General IxD Practice, Sketching and Prototyping, Education, Richness and Openness, and Defining The Damn Thing. David’s guests include Ted Booth, Interaction Design Director at Smart Design, and Jennifer Bove, Vice President of Interaction Design at HUGE, Inc.

Social spaces, private spaces, unfamiliar spaces—no matter where, people can detect even subtle frameworks and etiquettes. As our relationship to products, services, and to one another has been transformed over the past few years, entirely new frameworks have emerged.
These conditions signal a shift. People are being asked to improvise, to frame their own experiences. The designer merely sets out opportunities for people to use—to perceive connections and take advantage (or not) of a framework. But how do people know how to improvise?
