One thing I miss about Southern California is having a car. It's like a little moving pod space all to yourself. When you don't have that, where can you cry and still be out in the world? I've been working on this list for a couple years and @chanellediaz asked me to post it today. Here are some faves. Happy crying!
  1. Morningside Park
    Be in touch with nature and ponder the weird divide between Columbia & Harlem. Or just climb the thousands of stairs until your body just can't keep in the tears anymore. (Feat. @carlynkane)
  2. Basement of McNally Jackson
    So there's this chair that's usually in the biographies corner that's an A+ curl up and cry spot. No one is ever down there for too long because there's terrible/nonexistent cell service.
  3. Corner of Kaffe 1668
    It's so dark and cozy in the back corner. Everyone around you is pretty much guaranteed to be ultra wealthy. Let the tears flow. The sheep will console you.
  4. The N train to Brooklyn
    Sometimes you need to be in motion to think about how fleeting life is. Solid crying stuff! Take the N to Brooklyn during sunset, and you're in for the cry of your life. If you still feel self-conscious, just remember everyone on your train will leave soon.
  5. Hudson River path
    Another high-quality sunset-cry locale. Everyone will be running too fast to notice your snot-stained face.
  6. On a Megabus
    I've done some of my best crying on these double-deckers coming & leaving the city. You're on a bus! It already sucks! What's a tear or two?
