When we want a change of scenery from the Marlton (bonjourn.al/journal/151-coffices/entry/2951-greenwich-village-manhattan), we head further west to the High Line Hotel. While the Marlton has more indoor seating and food options, the High Line offers great outdoor spaces.
Along Tenth Avenue, the front patio is outfitted with small tables and chairs, as well as an Intelligentsia Coffee truck. Out back, there are two, open courtyard spaces to camp out. Inside the hotel lobby, there are several long couches and outlets. The lobby also has a cafe bar that serves Intelligentsia coffee and some pastries (banana bread is yums).
Wifi connection: A
Outlets: Yes, in the lobby.
Crowded: Empty in the mornings, moderately full in the afternoon.
Bottom line: Perfect place to work on a warm and sunny weekday.
Grab a bite: Los Tacos at Chelsea Market.
