Get Your Study On – Think Coffee

It’s “Midterms Week” at New York University.  Coupled with the (freezing) change in weather, students are scoping out prime indoor study spots.  Yesterday I caught up with my brother, also a student at NYU, for a quick cup of coffee before his Computer Programming Midterm (ew!).  The “bro” and I met at Think Coffee right […]

meet me ’round the corner: Arte Around the Corner

It was a cool and rainy Tuesday afternoon so I pulled out my red (and somewhat broken) umbrella and I walked down to Arte Around the Corner (73rd and Columbus).  I love this place because it has the cozy, quaint feel of an old-time coffee house – tall wooden chairs, flower vases on every table, […]

history in the heart of Times Square: Cafe Edison

This week I met up with a friend for breakfast at Cafe Edison, a famous little diner right off of Times Square.  The name has nothing to do with the light bulb-inventing Thomas Edison, but rather is connected to the Edison Hotel. From the front, Cafe Edison looks like just another New York City diner. […]

Très bien: Le Pain Quotidien

inconspicuous & incredible: The City Bakery

Thursday morning I met my college academic advisor for a little catch-up meeting.  As a part-time student, I often feel somewhat out-of-the-loop in terms of GE requirements, registration times, application deadlines, etc.  But all my anxieties are relieved after some academic planning with my advisor…and drinking a super-strong Americano. My advisor suggested we meet up […]

coffee + ice cream = heaven: Van Leeuwen’s

Last night I had class town at NYU’s Tisch Dance Building in the East Village.  It takes me a nice looooong walk or a couple of subway transfers to get down there, so I thought, why not visit a brand new coffee house before class?  Plus the weather was just perfect: overcast, cool (but not […]
