Since COVID-19, there has been a significant change in how and where we work, with many people choosing hourly, daily, or monthly workplaces as an alternative to returning to the office.
Since the pandemic ended commuting to work and in-person interactions with coworkers, many Americans have worked remotely for more than a year.
Employees are looking for places to work that suit their changing needs as the transition from office to remote work is likely to become a permanent fixture for many in New York City (office spaces for lease in Midtown and Lower Manhattan business districts reached an all-time high of 16.4% in March).
We’ve compiled a list of locations where you may work in peace for individuals who live in New York City and need a break from the confines of their home office and those who are going to the city for work.
