The fall semester is coming to an end, and finals are coming up. College is no joke, and we know it can seem overwhelming at times. Studying can be draining and stressful, and sometimes it can make you dread going home. Also, living with roommates can make it a little harder to stay focused when studying at home in your apartment. Therefore, we found the best spots in New York City to grab a coffee and work for those A´s.
They have it all. A wide, OK priced selection of beverages, coffee drinks, and pastries. Plenty of seating and outlets for laptops, free Wi-fi, some locations even have printing options available. It fills up quickly with college students, so get there early.
They are open from 7am to 10 or midnight, depending on location.
Locations: 147 1st avenue and 54 2nd avenue (Lower East Side), 31st and 3rd (Cooper Union), 824 Broadway (East 12 street), and 101 Bedford Ave (Williamsburg)
NYC Public Library
If you are looking for complete silence to work, then this is the spot for you. You can study in peace, without the noise and rush. Even though there are no options for coffee or food inside the library, you have plenty of options right outside, including Starbucks, Pret-a-Manger, and Joe & The Juice.
If you have never been inside the library you will also get to experience how beautiful it is in there.
Also, if you need research material, you are surrounded by it. They also offer free Wi-fi.
Location: 476 Fifth Avenue (Midtown)
FIKA is a swedish founded coffee spot that is perfect for a day of studying. They have great coffee and a chill and calm atmosphere. We would recommend the iced coffee, and a swedish cinnamon bun (kanelbulle).
And of course, free Wi-fi. Also, most locations have good seating options.
Locations: West 58th street (Columbus Circle), 155 7th Avenue (Chelsea), 66 Pearl Street (Financial District), 824 10th Ave (Hell’s Kitchen), 450 Washington Street (Tribeca).
This is a great random spot if you ever find yourself in Brooklyn. There’s a second floor for those who want to stay more secluded and they also serve their hot drinks in ceramic cups rather than paper. There’s also a barnes & noble close by for more resources and a Starbucks within!
Locations: 49 Bogart St (Bushwick), 156 Atlantic Ave (Cobble Hill), and 209 N 9th St (Williamsburg)
Another spot in Brooklyn that not many know about. It’s on the end of Atlantic Avenue where it meets the water so it offers a nice stroll down to Brooklyn Bridge Park. It’s one of the most quiet places you will ever find. They also sell macarons in a wide variety flavors, along with great coffee. Here’s a link!
Location: 88 Atlantic Avenue
Toby´s Estate Coffee
They offer lots of space to study, great coffee, a cozy atmosphere and amazing study food. Tends to be busy, so make sure you get there early.
Wi-fi is free as well.
Location: 125 N 6th St (between Beford Ave & Berry Street)
