  • This is by far my favorite place in NYC to go to to get work done! Huge wooden desk, plenty of outlets, clean and quiet environment, fast-free reliable wifi connection...It has all the essentials for an A+++ spot to study for test prep or work on your laptop. I wish it was open earlier and closed later weekly.
  • Nice multi-function public space with a library full of performance art references and resources, a small auditorium for live performances, art exhibits, and a cafeteria. The Broadway and West End exhibit has lots of interesting trivia and pieces from well-loved shows such as Chorus Line and The Lion King.
  • The Performing Arts Library is one of our city's treasures. Any performing artist should come here and comb through the music, the scripts, and there recordings. There's no end to what you can find and learn.
  • It is my favorite place in manhattan. I can read scores whatever and they provide free wifi. Desk and chair are wonderful to learn.
  • Clean library, good for working, great collections. Computers are relatively clean. The second floor laptop area can get loud.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
