I'm in Manhattan for the next three days and need a good neighborhood cafe to spend several hours at a time working on my laptop.
My hotel's in west Midtown, but anywhere within an easy subway ride is fine with me.
Ideal would be:
1) free wi-fi
2) reasonably quiet (but not so much that they'll mind me typing away)
3) not exceptionally crowded (so I don't risk lugging my laptop across town and finding out they have no seats available)
4) excellent coffee or tea in a comfortable setting
5) power outlets available (not absolutely critical, but nice to have)
Thanks for any thoughts!
