I'm looking for film noir-ish locations in Manhattan to sit down and write!

I don't smoke, I'm not an alcoholic and I'm almost aggressively optimistic but I can't watch 1940's and 50's film noir without the itch to be in one. I made a pros-and-cons list and being seduced by a fatally attractive female and riding a deadly train to the end of the line seemed like a largely bad idea so instead... instead I just want a moody 40s/50s noir-ish place (in Manhattan, NY) to turn on some jazz, maybe drink a strong cup of coffee, and write!
I guess this seems to be a request for late night spots, but the back of a dark coffee shop (The Hungarian Pastry Shop on the UWS is a good example of this) could be a welcome daytime write-spot too!
