Pro Tips

Think big bookstore with a cafe...because that is exactly what it is. Nice open design, folk music playing kind of joint. No plugs, free (but pretty slow) wifi. Cushioned seats. Housing Works is a nonprofit bookstore and cafe that advocates on behalf of those with HIV/AIDS and the homeless community in the city. The money you spend here will be put to good use.

  • Awesome bookstore, decent cafe, unusable wifi
