Re: [newtech-1] Good cafe/place to code, meet techies in NY

Yes, there's no reason to go to Starbucks. :) Nothing against them ... everyone loves the occasional sugary treat ... but they tend to be poor places to work.

Is the idea setting up a more informal coworking event, regular coding hang? One that's code-centric would be fabulous, especially if people were on the same wavelength.

For existing coworking efforts:

And, bar none, the best guide to NYC coffee (including wifi) is here:

For anyone in downtown Brooklyn or the surrounding areas, ReBar is a great spot with free wifi, a coffee bar and a belgian beer bar.  There are comfy couches and typically lots of people working away at laptops.  The best part - no one ever hassles you and you don't have to buy in order to hang.  It's a good spot for meetings too - spacious, yet private.

Here's the location:

For this sort of thing, let me plug the South Street Seaport -- fantastic view of the Brooklyn Bridge, free WiFi, lots of tables/chairs, lots of room, and since the hotspot is on the same floor as the food court (third floor of Pier 17), you know what to do when you get the munchies. The downside of this place is the location of the power outlets. See http://www.SouthStreetSeaport.com for location information, etc.
 
The Downtown Alliance has set up at least eight free wifi hotspots in Bowling Green, the Vietnam Veterans Plaza, the 60 Wall Street Atrium, and more. See http://www.downtownny.com/discover/wifi/ for details.
 
Starbucks is nice too, but you have to pay for your connection. There are a number of smaller and just as cozy coffeehouses in lower Manhattan with free wifi but I haven't used them so I cannot give you my opinion of them as a venue. The major problem with parks is lack of power outlets, otherwise, I guess, that would be a way to go as well.

Hi,
 I've always heard that there's plenty of places on the west coast where techies go for coffe, beer, or just sit down with their laptops.
Does anyone here know if there's such a thing here in NY? and if not? what would you guys propose as hangout places for techies.
If anyone knows of a good place with free fast wifi, where you can just sit and code all day in the city please recommend it.
