Working remotely from NYC

I'd like to find a good place to work from remotely with my laptop in NYC (preferably Manhattan) for two days next week. In the Bay Area, we have coffeeshops where for a reasonable hourly fee you can essentially rent a table and wi-fi, and patronize the cafe as desired on top of that. Guarantees good internet and no side-eye from employees for taking up space for long periods. Is there anything like that in NY? Google is not turning it up on a quick search.

What are those giant, ruined columns at Half Moon Bay?

I was recently down on the beach at Half Moon Bay and saw a giant, ruined structure by the cliffs. I saw a comment suggesting it might be a WWII coastal battery, but I think there are several such structures in the area, and the comment wasn't accompanied by photos.

Cheaper DCA parking options?

I'm flying out of DCA on an upcoming Friday evening, returning on the following Monday evening, and looking for cheaper parking options. (It's a stretch to call the $17 you pay at the airport "economy" parking.) I'd rather not involve Metro if possible, and this is a non-holiday weekend. I've seen sites that sell discounted access to a nearby parking garages, like this one. Is this reliable, in your experience? Do you have another suggestion for me?

Weekday Washington DC holiday advice

I'm looking to spend a week in Washington DC with my wife hitting up the museums,sights and food. We don't drive so we need advice on where to stay with suitable public transit options. We are not poor but we aren't loaded either so we are looking for midrange accomodations rather than budget busting DC core hotels. [more inside]

Whale Watching/Island Hopping Boat Rides Near Bar Harbor, ME in April

We booked a last minute 10th anniversary trip to Bar Harbor, ME last night, hoping to fulfill my "dream" to go whale watching. The cursory internet search said whale watching begins in mid-April, but nothing seems to open before mid-May. It doesn't specifically have to be in Bar Harbor, but within reasonable driving distance. Of course any other off the beaten path suggestions are welcome. It seems a lot is still closed in mid-April so year round ideas would be very much appreciated. [more inside]

Just HOW crazy is the eclipse viewing going to be?

I was planning to drive with my mother down to see the eclipse in Oregon, but the discussion here has got me rather intimidated. If we stay in Pendleton and try to drive south into the totality area on the morning of the eclipse, are we just going to be stuck in zombie-apocalypse level traffic jam? [more inside]
