New York Public Library

So, not only is Bryant Park a really pretty area in New York with some great shops and food for a recent college grad on a budget. It also houses one of the biggest and most comfortable libraries in New York. On the first floor is a coffee shop with a comfortable atmosphere, comparable to Starbucks. You can talk at a low whisper with friends, which is perfect if you and your friend happen to be apartment hunting.  Warning: outlet space is limited so plan accordingly. There are 3 other study rooms on the second and third floors with printers and a quiet area to work. Perfect for the job hunt. After you’re done at the library Cozi’s, Pret A Manger, and Chipotle are all across the street for lunch. And, if you feel like taking a break to shop ladies H&M is right around the corner as well as Modells.


Grand Central Station

So, I never realized just how amazing Grand Central is until today. I stupidly left my mac charger back in DC and I had to go out to find a replacement. I searched google for mac store locations and the Grand Central terminal popped up. Inside the station on the top floor is one of New York’s best hidden mac stores. If you go on a weekday mid-afternoon it is quick, easy, and the people are so friendly. I was in and out in 15 mins (and that was with a stop to the genius bar. My mac was having other issues:( ). I also had some of the best yellow chicken curry I have ever had . Grand Central Station is definitely worth exploring.
