If you’re looking for a place to work on the Lower East Side, try Spreadhouse. It’s a big space, and it kind of feels like a garage filled with a bunch of couches. This place is very laid-back, there’s free wifi, and there tends to be a good donut selection, if that’s important to you. Just know that it gets a little busy during the daytime, and try to get here early if you want to claim a long-term seat.
