being from the land of snow and mediochrity, I grew up where coffeeshops were plentiful and it was fine to stay for a few hours reading and writing. Alas! I haven't found a coffeeshop with that "stay a while" atmosphere and good coffee. I do like cafe reggio in the West Village, but the metal back chairs and squashed table don't inspiring the sitting and scribbling. Looking for all boro's (well, not staten island) and a place that doesn't drip with college decor.
a place in which I could really write my first novel , you know.
