2. LG Laundry Lounge (1616 Amsterdam Avenue, Harlem)

Going to the recently opened LG Laundry Lounge in Harlem (between 139 and 140th Streets on Amsterdam Avenue) is no longer just about the clothes–it’s more like a weekend office station for some. While my clothes tumble and rumble in the sparkling machines behind me, I will be tapping away and working on my laptop, sitting at one of the pristine white countertops in the premises. Yes, this is no ordinary laundromat–you get WiFi access to the Internet here. [Reported by Aby Sam Thomas].
