Best 24-hour places to study in NYC?

I live in Astoria. I go to law school in Jamaica. I need to study. A lot. I'm a night owl who studies best in the very early morning. I work best outside of my apartment. Where are the 24-hour places to study in NYC, preferably off of the N/W or the F line?

However, I don't know of many convenient, 24-hour venues where I can study, with my books and laptop, plus perhaps drink coffee and otherwise be a calm little study-bee. I would very much like to craft my schedule so that I could go to class during the day, sleep in the early evening, wake up during the witching hour, and then traipse off to a place where I can study without a bed in clear view. Wi-Fi would be nice, but it's not absolutely necessary. I realize that there are a number of 24-hour cafes lurking about, but which ones would be least likely to be annoyed by my showing up with books in hand?
So, where shall I go?
It needs to be somewhere accessible either to Astoria by public transportation (so, off of the N/W lines) or to Jamaica (so, off of the F line). Must be in a safe location (I consider Astoria to be a gold standard of safety, barring when people get knifed in strip clubs).
