so i just started going to parsons. i may need to buy lunch at least once a week...preferably for under $6 including tax!

i only have 20 minutes between classes. that means my range is essentially 6th ave to university, 15th to 10th...and that may be pushing it. and since i'm not in an office with my own desk, i need to consider portability and neatness.

mainly thinking good sandwiches. so far i'm not excited about the 2 delis on 5th near 13th, although one offers a student discount. murray's is ok, and fits my distance requirements. might be able to get ramen from dosirak if i have time before my first class, but if i run out during the 20 minute break, sandwiches would be best option for in-class bites. also, are there any carts nearby with good egg-and-cheese? both carts i've seen only had pastries.

i know the topic of union square eats has been posted frequently, but i'm on such a tight budget and time frame, and am asking for a smaller, specific area. any ideas?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
