I love discovering new, neat little places in NYC; my own corners of the world, if you think about it. I mean, in NYC it’s more like my own corner of the world…plus everyone else’s (but that’s not a bad thing). Finding my favorite places makes NYC feel homey and familiar in a city that is constantly growing and changing. A favorite view, a tranquil spot, good company, a fun atmosphere, it all amounts to something special, doesn’t it? What’s one of the first things that you imagine when you first think of NYC? Coffee makes the cut, in my opinion. It’s one of those many iconic things about the city; New Yorkers bustling around, running from here to there, cell phone in one hand and…coffee in the other. So where do these city dwellers go for that cup? Many head to Starbucks (myself included), but on the rare occasion that I’ve got free time I head to my favorite place. It’s comfy, it’s got a homey and inviting feel, the staff is super friendly, and I could go on and on. It’s a generally relaxing atmosphere, and it is where I’m spending a nice Tuesday afternoon before the madness of work tonight. Plus…the coffee is tasty and the seats are plentiful and comfy. I hope you are as lucky as me to find your favorite places, and I truly recommend that you try out any of the Manhattanville locations because, you know, all of the things I listed above!
