The Fifth Floor is a place. Yes, it actually exists right in the heart of downtown Manhattan. The Fifth Floor is a place that we want everyone to be able to experience whether you’re living on a beach in Australia or your parent's basement (no judgement here). What in the world are we talking about? Let us explain.
After a year of feeling lost and disconnected from her goals and priorities, our founder, Ashley Brooke, started searching for ways to regain that spark and get back to doing what she loved. She decided she needed a change - because no one enjoys feeling like shit, right?
It just so happened her lease was up on her apartment, so she decided to move. She packed up all of her belongings and moved all the way across the city (ok, 2 blocks). She decided her fifth floor apartment was going to be a happy, positive place where there’s no self judgement, no creative borders, no fear, and no attachments to outcome. Man, did that feel good.
This is how Fifth Floor was born. Look at it as an alter ego (except an alter place?).
She thought everyone needed their own version of the fifth floor. Now we aren’t saying pack everything you own and move apartments because lolz. It’s not about that. It’s about change. A change in environment, a change in your community, a change in your daily activities. The Fifth Floor could be your favorite park bench or a little corner in your bedroom. But here’s the kicker… It doesn’t even have to be a physical place! It could be a place in your mind where you go to escape the negatives and reinvent your mindset to be whoever you want. To become indestructible. Your Alter Place. Your Fifth Floor.
