Most days, I work out of my home office. It’s a nice space – lots of natural light, a comfy chair, easy access to good coffee, hot and cold sleeping kittens. And I don’t have to wear shoes.
But when you work at home, alone, you can go a little batshit after a while, looking at the same four walls (even when you picked the artwork and colors out yourself).
Some days I go to a co-working space, and let the noise of other people rush over me. There’s good coffee there, too, and industrial-strength wifi, and it’s near Chinatown so lunch is never a problem. *g* But sometimes I need a different view. Fresh air. No wifi.
Yep, that’s in New York City. Â Really. Â We’ve got a LOT of parkland: some of it groomed, some of it not, some of it famous, some of it known only to the locals. Â Some of it even has wifi (hello Bryant Park I love you).
And when you’re working there, you can hang out with squirrels (both black and grey), blue jays and robins, fearless sparrows, the occasional possum or a falcon, and a paradox. Â Er, a pair of ducks.
Yeah, we’re not all about skyscrapers. Â Although we’ve got those too.

There is an amazing amount of parkland in NYC, if you know where to look. Prospect Park! Central Park! Fort Tryon Park! This Highline park thingy (which I have not yet seen).
