Yeah, I live with a family friend, but I'm not a fancy uptowner. Here's my life as the only broke person on the UWS.

    Pretty great coffee and sandwiches. A bit overpriced, but they give you chocolate with each purchase -- and their hot chocolate is phenomenal!

    A KILLER GOODWILL. Found a Brooks Brothers sweater for $10 once. Rich people give away nice things; come here to take advantage while helping a great organization!

    Independent, not a chain! Went there randomly when I got sick while walking, staff was OUTSTANDING in taking care of me and making sure I was okay. So thankful. Go here.

    The perfect little bookstore. Stacks on stacks of rare books that you'll get lost in. Absolutely beautiful.

    Shhh, this is a quiet Sephora that isn't packed. Makes shopping such a breeze.

    Why would you go to a chain optician when this store exists?! Amazing staff and doctors. Forget Cohen's. Pildes will take care of you.

    Do not go anywhere else for running shoes. Independent chain, amazing customer service from experts who will watch you run on a fancy treadmill to match you with the best shoe

    SO GOOD. Expensive, but SO GOOD. Don't schlep down to Katz's, come here and treat yourself to the pastrami of your dreams!
