Hacker News Revisits Eternal Question of Coffee Shops with Wifi in New York

This question resurfaces every once in a while: Where can a hacker/entrepreneur get some coffee and fast internet in this town? “As many of you can relate to, I tend to get bored working at home and try to go out and about in the city hoping to find a good spot to get some work done. Startbucks does not do it for me–WIFI is too slow and I lose my patience waiting for the bar to go 100% when I FTP a file. Very frustrating. Aren’t there places that can relate to this and are catering to startups?” Help this man out over on Hacker News, or revisit the comprehensive Quora thread, or read this Betabeat story about co-working or check out this slideshow at The Observer.

  1. You should try a Clear or Verizon 4G hotspot. You can take it anywhere and get fast and secure internet, and then worry about the ambiance separately.

  2. You can always swing by WeWork Labs if you know a member here. We only have coffee in the AM BUT we do have pretty great internet speeds.
