I'm in Manhattan for a few weeks and am looking for good spots with free (or cheap) wi-fi.

Starbucks is fine, but the wi-fi's not that fast and the seating is often not that comfortable. The NYPL is beautiful, but the seating isn't too comfortable, and it's a bit of a hassle leaving the room because security has to check your bags.
It doesn't have to be free. For example, I've worked at the lounge of the W and bought a tonic water as the price of admission. That sort of thing is fine.
(1) fast internet
(2) comfortable seating
(3) relatively close to the upper-east side (or accessible from the 4,5,6)
