Sunday, Study, Manhattan

I need a quiet place to study in Manhattan on Sunday. Apparently all the libraries are closed today. Just need the basics - chair, table, quiet.

for free? your best bet is probably one of the parks, with headphones to block out the noise.

Splurge on a coffee and sit in a café until you get kicked out.

At Trump Tower you can sit next to a huge indoor waterfall or in a glass-enclosed space with temp control, lots of light, trees and sculptures. There are spots inside to get a bite to eat, also.

All the NYPL and Brooklyn branches are closed, but not the Queens Library branches. (NYPL serves the Bronx, Manhattan & Staten Island.)

Queens has six branches open on Sundays

And I see of those six, the one closest to Manhattan & very easily accessible by 5 subway lines is Jackson Heights.

It might be different on weekends, but the people at the Housingworks bookstore in Soho tolerated me working in their cafe for hours for the price of a cup of coffee.

Any Borders or Barnes and Noble cafe

Here was a similar question from a few months back. Summary: Housing Works seems to be the favorite.
