Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is a nonprofit bookstore, cafe, and event space. All proceeds from every show you attend and everything you buy, down to a record and a PBR, go directly to our mission of fighting AIDS and homelessness.
There are fantastic musical, comedy (every Tues at 8:30; free!), and reading events, plus a little-known, but great, used-record selection.
Come here for the eclectic selection of used books and relax in the back café with a delicious selection of teas, coffee and snacks. 100% of the profits go to ending AIDS and homelessness.
If you can snag a table on the balcony, do it. Just walk up one of the staircases.
Bookstores are among the best places to see women who look like Janeane Garofalo. But at Housing Works you might actually see Janeane herself.
A kinda-hidden gem of SoHo tucked away on a cobblestoned backstreet, a great bookstore with some must-try chai. So good, it just had to rhyme.
Iced chai w/ soy gives Mud a run for its money, and the walls-of-books aesthetic can't be beat.
Knock out a bunch of work with a good coffee for a great cause.
great place to actually get work done. the free wi-fi doesn't hurt.
Best place in the city to study and you just can't beat the free Wi-Fi!
Once a month, 30% off all books, music, DVD's. Usually the second weekend of the month, Saturday and Sunday all day.
Being a New Yorker with the ever rushing lifestyle (for no particular reason) a bookstore like this is exactly what I need to mellow out. A very chill, calming environment to sip on a nice cup of java
Don't waste money on bottled water; their iced tap water is frickin amazing.
Iced mocha is delicious. In the last few months, it's made in a new way that makes the chocolate taste much stronger. Definitely a plus.
Hello, free wifi and quiet space!
They provide free condoms at check out, just in case you need some at the bookstore.
Nice, quiet place to work. Wifi is great, but make sure you have a full battery charge on laptop: no outlets available. While you are there, buy a book for a great cause!
Go for the wonderful printed matter selection and friendly (mostly volunteer) customer service. wonderful. The prices, be warned, might be a little higher than, i.e. Strand but it's worth it.
Order an iced latte and snag a balcony seat! Proceeds go to a great cause, too!
Great place to have a meeting. Quiet, plenty of seats, and good drink options (coffee, wine, beer)
Best bookstore in the city and has free wifi.
They have intelligentsia coffee for 1.50. Basically a steal
Great place to get some work done while enjoying good music, sipping on a coffee. Warning: no outlets available for your laptop.
They host amazing special events. Cozy vibe inside. Check out the collection of uber-cheap uncorrected proofs on sale, and read the next bestseller before it hits shelves officially.
This place is my happy save haven in Manhattan! The staff is INCREDIBLY nice, the proceeds go to charity, and you can find books for 50 cents! I COULD LIVE HERE. I LOVE IT.
Gossip Girl: Vanessa spots Charlie reading a strange book (Episode: 420)
Free wifi, good coffee, great cause, wonderful volunteers. <3
sit, relax, and coffee. really laid back vibe.
i gave them tons of my books when i moved, it is a great place to chill and read if you have the time
Don't plan on staying a while until you make sure you have some laptop battery left, they have no power outlets!!!! Lame-o!
Slate Gabfest was here and Chrissie Hynde performs nezt week
Get the iced latte, feel renewed
They have consistently good coffee, and are always hosting amazing events and speakers, such as David Sedaris on 6/3. Get here early for big events though, the line stretches down the block.
Nice to get some (handwritten) work done here - no outlets!
Really great iced coffee.. Even better than La Colombe!
By far my most favorite bookstore in the city :)
Great spot for studying or working, but just FYI you can't charge your phone or laptop here. They turned off the outlets to cut down on the electric bill!
No public power plugs. Check to see if they have readings - they move tables and you won't be able to read/study/work.
Coffee, books, and a good cause? Yes! 100% of their proceeds go to Housing Works: a healing community dedicated to helping those affected by or living with HIV/AIDS.
Don't miss out on The Moth story slams!
If you're not going to purchase a book or overpriced coffee, at least stop in to use the free wi-fi :)
Amazing place to work with wifi, but no outlets!
Volunteer's are great! Cool hats are a bonus
I don't do books but I do $5 beers. Great place to just chill after work instead of a loud bar. Top spot for people watching.
A bookstore that bumps Phoenix, sells beer, and has free wifi is all right by me.
