6. The People’s Voice Cafe in the Community Church of New York

Located at 40 East 35th Street, The People’s Voice Cafe is another musical coffeehouse with a bit of an extra spark. Founded in 1979 by members of Songs of Freedom and Struggle (now People’s Music Network for Songs of Freedom and Struggle), the cafe prides itself on facilitating progressive music that advocates for a peaceful world. The cafe is not affiliated with any religious organization, despite its digs in the Community Church of New York.
