    You had me until that last image and then, what could I do but quote the late great HST:

    I wanted something original, but there was no escaping the echo of Mistah Kurtz’ final words from the heart of darkness: “The horror! The horror! … Exterminate all the brutes!”

    No need for that if you just go into shuffle mode on your music library, the little file list icon thingy on the right of the top song window opens up the list of what will be playing next.

    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.
