Need a change of scenery? I stumbled upon Workfrom while trying to figure where I'm supposed to go get some work done now that my favorite hideaway to bust out some serious productivity, the Rose Reading Room in the New York public library, is closed for restoration until fall of 2017, total bummer. Now I have workfrom to hold me over until then, use Workfrom to discover the best coffee shops, bars, coworking spaces and other work-friendly places in cities and towns everywhere. Discover hidden gems, local favorites and otherwise hard to find workspaces. You’ll see WiFi speeds, access to power outlets and other important info about places before you go. Help others by recommending work-friendly spaces you find and enjoy the benefits of inside information, deals and community.
