Crying in public is something winners do. It’s the ultimate mark of bravery, something that can only be properly executed by those with tact, sharp instincts, unparalleled hiding skills, and tremendous sadness.
If you haven’t cried in the Rockefeller Ice Rink while pretending you’re Nancy Kerrigan in the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, now is a great time to take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself, “WHERE DID I GO WRONG?" A must-cry, two thumbs way up.
The lines are usually very long for the dressing rooms here, which allows you to anticipate your impending cry - adding to it’s intensity and reward. Plus, once you get a room, you are surrounded by mirrors which provide you with a wonderful, dramatic look at yourself weeping from multiple angles! Once you cry like this, it’s very hard to do it any other way.
It’s a rather stressful and traumatic cry, but you sure can’t beat the deals. If people look at you here with judge-y eyes it’s only because they are crying on the inside but aren’t brave enough to show it. I rate this a C+ cry space because it is absolutely miserable, but the dark chocolate peanut butter cups are pure heaven.
NOT a good experience. Hid in the acoustic guitar room to have what I thought was going to be a very quick cry. Unfortunately, a novice guitar player was also in the room testing out a guitar by playing the song “Time of Your Life” by Green Day over and over again. Do not cry here!
Upper deck + Your tears streaming into the river + A free ride = An absolute must. It’s so free and so, so nice. Get on board and start weeping immediately! Oh, and of course, be sure to ride it all day long!!! A+
Oh hell crying yes! This is the mothership! 9 huge floors!! Endless crying nooks!! Don't forget, it’s not a sprint -- it’s a marathon!!!! Be sure to save tears for the slow ride down as well. A painfully enjoyable cry, 5 stars.

Although this location is in the heart of midtown which is usually a criers arch-nemesis, this particular Duane Reade offers a relatively empty second floor. Come cry here quick before the word gets out. Highly recommended!
Great for a cry on the go! Grand Central offers a wonderful large escalator from the 7 train up to where the other trains board. With people only in front and behind you, you can feel free to cry without anyone looking or wondering what you’re up to. Great for a 1-2 minute quick cry.
