‘Waypoint’ Offers Video Games and Coffee on Ludlow Street
Caffeine and video games go hand in hand. Waypoint, a new cafe that marries the two, is now serving on Ludlow Street.
The last series of tenants at 65 Ludlow Street were of the gallery ilk, neither of which really made an indelible mark in the area. Into that recent void comes Waypoint, which is a coffee shop that doubles as a gaming location. Indeed, according to this job listing, the establishment “features 31 high end gaming computers, a Twitch streaming booth, a lounge area for our patrons, and a fully equipped coffee bar with hot food service.”
Waypoint opening here is seemingly a gamble on the population across the street. Namely, the student population attending school every day across the street at one of programs inside the Seward Park High School.
This area is somewhat hospitable to gaming joints, with Xeno Zero a few blocks away on Orchard Street. How long can a place like this last, though?
