Silly complaint of the day

Why doesn't NYU have campus coffee shops? (Does NYU have campus coffee shops?)

One of the best things about otherwise dreary/frightening Hyde Park, Chicago is Classics Cafe. There, you can get a mocha or an espresso-charged iced coffee and be a matter of feet away from the French department. You can watch the many "unconventional" beauties in ragged tweed as they pretend to read books in languages they may not even understand, possibly holding them upside down. Here in the Village, coffee shops have no academic affiliation, and have either loud music, no seating space, or heartthrob-actor clienteles. (The West 4th street branch. Gyllenhaal fans, now you know).

The Divinity School Coffee Shop. Where God drinks coffee.

The Esperanto Cafe near Bobst is pretty good. I like going there and using my Hebrew as well.

There is one at Bleeker street and La Guardia place which is not bad. It also has great pastries. At least it used to exist circa 2004.
