At Third Rail, we believe great coffee is best enjoyed with friends. One of the things we're proudest of is fostering community and creating spaces that help connect people to each other. That's why when the good folks at We3 reached out to us we were excited to partner with them for the launch of their app here in NYC.

Now showing at our Sullivan Street location, a powerful exhibit of photographs of the ongoing refugee crisis by Ash Gilbertson.
Check out the accompanying piece in the NY Times here, follow this story and please consider taking some action as the Holidays and winter approach.
Due to the tragic explosion and fire at our neighbors down on 7th street, we've postponed this event until Thursday 4.2.15 - Same time, same place.
We're pretty pretty pretty pretty excited about our latest exhibition. #MessLife is a work in progress by our good friend Ash Gilbertson of the VII Photo Network. Ash has been documenting the people and the culture surrounding our local bike messengers here in NYC and it's paid off with some stellar photos already. In a first for us, the work will be shown across both shops - we think it's fitting given the subject matter. For style points, BIKE to both to take them all in - they're up now!
We're planning an opening reception for some time next week, probably Thursday night...stay tuned to our feeds for the latest!
For the past two months, our guest roaster program has been all about our hometown, New York City! We’ve been showcasing coffee roasted by some great friends in the local coffee community, creating our first N.Y. Roaster’s Series.
The idea for this started developing over here a while ago because we love our city and we're proud of the coffee culture we've been collectively forging here. All of the roasters we are featuring approach coffee differently and truly believe in what they are doing. It’s exciting to work with and serve so many styles of the thing we love the most – coffee!
We’ve featured a variety of coffees from Parlor Coffee and Plowshares and we’ll round out the series with two more surprise guests! Each of this year’s roasters has roughly a three week turn and will host a cupping at our 10th Street location to share their vision with us.
Stay tuned to our feeds for the latest.
We had such a good time providing coffee at this special live recording of Icelandic artist Asgeir at the legendary Electric Lady Studios on 8th street! Hosted by the lovely Carmel Holt, you can listen to it on WFUV (90.7) tonight at 9pm EST or on their website.
We're thumbing our noses at Winter with this Summery exhibit at our Sullivan St. shop.Read More
