Looking for a trading firm in NYC who will rent a desk.

    I am currently working on a system using OpenQuant through IB. I was wondering if anyone knows of a trading firm in New York who will rent me a desk and internet connection and let me do my own thing.

    I would like to be more social during the day, around people with similar interests. I do not want to clear through them, use their computers, or give them a percent of my profit (unless I have no other option). I have been searching, and have found many places that offer this service, but none specialized for traders.

    Is anybody familiar with a firm which offers this service?

    Do you have any suggestions for other alternatives to my idea?
