</div>Grand Central. The place where all roads meet. In a perfect world, every weary traveler would have all their needs within arms reach. But this is not a perfect world: this is one of the busiest thoroughfares in New York City: 10017. Lucky for all you weary travelers, Jen used to temp around here and can help us navigate this complex area like the pro she is.<br />

<div>Co-fi: <a href="http://www.getcosi.com/">Cosi</a>. Also known as “not starbucks”. Cosi has a reliable and everflowing wi-fi policy.
