Sheets. Man, what a weird thing this word made me think, at first! You’d think that the first idea that would’ve come to mind is bed sheets…but no, my weird brain has to come up with sheets of New York City summer rain. I never thought that when I moved to New York City I’d be sent running for the nearest building because of the torrent of water coming from the sky pretty often! When I say torrent, I mean heavy, drenching to the bone, heavy, flood-like rain…quite often. I will say this: there was one time when I was inspired by people who were effected by…your guessed it: the rain. I went to see Troilus and Cressida at Shakespeare in the Park, and the actors continued on in the pouring rain as if nothing had happened. They had to be drenched down to their shoes, but you’d never know it by their acting. I was crazy inspired!
Beautiful NYC day on my way out of town!
I wanna try this place!!!! It had a huge line out the door!!!!!
I’ve officially found my favorite coffee shop in NYC! You step in and feel like you’re not in NYC anymore…so it’s very NYC!
I’ve found that ambition has a price, so I’m trying to revel in the beauty of the moment while working to make my dreams happen. 🙂
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!
Two iconic scenes of NYC in one shot…Central Park tranquility and MTA subway madness…all in one.
