Good Morning New York

Before I move into the NYU dorms for the rest of my summer, I've been staying at my friend's apartment uptown. For me there are two different New Yorks: uptown and downtown. As anyone who has ever been to New York knows, the two areas could be considered foils- intrinsically linked by land but occupying completely different cultural landscapes. Since I'm from the Upper East Side, its more homely and familiar to me. But since I had the typical UES parents (investment banker dad, stay at home mom) I very rarely ventured below 50th street before the age of 13. So while I'm looking forward to exploring the village this summer, I always enjoy strolling along 5th, Madison, and Park while I can.
So for the past few mornings I've been getting up at 7:30, grabbing a cup of coffee from one of the many cafes and bagel shops and establishing a little area for myself to properly wake up in central park.  I've gotten quite accustomed to this ritual but I don't think I'll ever grow tired of this view. What do you think?
