housing works.jpgA few weeks ago, we asked our freelance readers to tell us where you like to spend your work days — outside of your apartment. With coffee shops around the city cracking down on laptop use, finding a good spot to sit down, plug in and caffeinate can be a problem.

You sent us lots of good responses and we’re going to try to visit them all and let you know how they all stack up. This week, our first visit was to Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in Soho.

Where’s The Best Place For Freelancers To Work In NYC?

coffee shop.jpgYesterday, a story we came across in The Wall Street Journal got us thinking: where do New York’s laptop-toting freelancers and bloggers like to work when they step out of their home offices?

Coffee shops, cafes, delis, libraries, book shops and even bars offer wireless Internet access, but it seems that more and more are making those of us looking for a place to work feel unwelcome. Wouldn’t it make your life easier if there was a list of the best places to work in the city?

Well, we’re on the case. Send us an email or leave a note in the comments letting us know your favorite laptop-friendly haunts. We’ll gather all your tips, take a trip there ourselves and compile the results for you. We’ll rank places based on quality and reliability of the Internet connection, friendliness of the staff, selection of coffee and snacks, access to electrical outlets, difficulty finding a place to sit, and any other factors we decide are important (if we missed anything, let us know).

We can’t wait to hear from you and start investigating the best places to work in the city.
