Trading Arcades in NYC? or PROP Trading Firm?

  1. I'm trying to become a full-time trader and for the third time this week Tradestation is gone down.

    I have to give up on this joint and move on.

    I would like some opinions:
    1. Should I go to a trading arcade - Can you tell me if there are any in Manhattan (NYC area).
    2. Should I go to a prop trading firm? - Will they let me trade my own account?

    3. Are there any other solutions possible? I'm a small swing trader and need a platform(s) that won't go down several times a week. Perhaps there are other NYC traders who would like to rent some small space in NYC and set up an arcade?

    ... I'm thinking out loud here people. If there are any other suggestions or comments, feel free to submit them
