Before heading home after the spring semester, I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days in NYC, and even luckier to do so with my boyfriend. We found ourselves with a full day of sunshine between two incredibly rainy ones, and set out to make the most of it without a detailed schedule or an extensive budget. I really feel that the universe was on our side here because it was a well spent NYC spring day.
One of my favorite ways to spend spare hours is in a coffee shop with my laptop or a book. I love the atmosphere, the conversations, the smell of coffee, and the satisfaction of becoming engrossed in reading or writing for a while.
Naturally, when I started an internship in NYC this semester, I quickly noticed the array of different coffee shops on my path to work. Any days I had spare time, I would pick a new shop to visit. After lots of caffeine and several months of city travel, I have a list of my favorites.
One of the perks of going to school on Long Island is the proximity to New York City. Since September, I’ve gotten a (loose) grasp on public transportation and can get from school to train to city pretty easily. I even took on buses last semester to visit a friend in New Jersey.
Last weekend, that same friend and I met up in the city and had such a great day that I can’t shut up about it.
