On the corner of Linden and Broadway sits my new favorite study spot: Linden Public.
This is a gem hidden in plain sight, I can't believe it took me so long to finally visit! For starters, there's plenty of parking out front, if you know LB, you know that's practically unheard of. Second-- and the best part, is the interior, and upstairs views of art-deco buildings that surround the intersection, palm trees and the breeze from floor-to-ceiling windows. This place has everything you could ask for, and more: a walk-up window if you're just stopping by, WiFi (of course), lots of outlets, comfy seating and normal bar seating, views, an ocean breeze, a long, wooden communal table (the hipster staple), great coffee and friendly baristas! I only worked there for a few hours, but I already have a favorite seat and drink-- the upstairs corner with two floor outlets, and the rosewater mocha. If you happen to visit and you're hungry, be sure to sit outside in the street, which they've commandeered (and have musicians perform).
Next visit: brunch! (As recommended!)
