Even if most of the L&T C’s classes are in Midtown, the main NYU campus is down by Washington Square and she’s likely to have to trek down there from time to time. When she does, she’ll be right by the late Steve Gilliard’s fave split pea soup at Cozy’s Soup & Burger, and there’s nothing like a bowl of that soup and a grilled cheese sammich on a raw fall day.
Oh, and some notes on life in the city. Probably as a function of the fact that most of us live in places that are smaller than a good sized walk-in closet, we tend to go out a lot just to hang out rather than stay home or drop by a friend’s place. So part of learning the city is finding comfy places to have a cup of coffee or a beer while you’re reading a book. And yes, it’s fairly common to see someone sitting at a bar just reading the paper or a book.
Also as a function of living in rabbit warrens with small kitchens, a better strategy for grocery shopping is to buy just a couple of days worth of fresh produce on your way home from work rather that a once-a-week mega shopping trip. And there’s always Fresh Direct, which is like the only successful attempt at an online supermarket.
A quick gloss on live music.
Best buskers are in Washington Square Park.
Concerty venues: Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Roseland, Terminal5.
Mercury Lounge, Webster Hall for smaller acts.
Rodeo Bar for americana, rockabilly, killer margaritas and no cover.
Paddy Reilly’s for bluegrass, punk-irish and Guinness.
Otto’s Shrunken Head, because it’s Otto’s.
I’m sure I missed a ton of places and we haven’t even talked about Brooklyn.
Like Spaghetti Lee above, I don't know much beyond their hits. I do know folks who were friends and neighbors and they're pretty torn up. 47 is way too young.

Yeah, Cleveland did rock. I spent my formative years (i.e. college, early 20s) in Cleveland when the whole Cleveland / Akron music scene was at its peak. Rocket From The Tombs disappeared before anyone actually knew about them, but Pere Ubu, Tin Huey, The Numbers Band, etc. were around.
The great thing was that there was a ton of live music around at places like the Euclid Tavern, Peabody's, Phantasy Theater, and others. The guitar player from The Generators (to this day my favorite bar band) has posted some videos from a show of theirs back around '81 that brings back a lot of memories.
Oddly enough, none of these are on Mitt's playlist either:
On The Surface – Pere Ubu
Mystery Train – Saunders/Garcia/Kahn/Vitt
Johnny B. Goode – Grateful Dead
One Of Us – Joan Osborne
Icy Blue Heart – John Hiatt
Longview – Green Day

And a little bonus Ubu: 333 – Pere Ubu
