NYC STORIES: THE APARTMENT BY THE LINE

The Apartment by The Line

The last time I visited The Apartment by The Line was about two years ago, so I decided to go back to check it out again. Essentially it’s a decorated apartment filled with products. You can buy 99% if the interior, and I think that’s such a unique concept. It had changed a lot since that last time I visited, and the man in the store told me that there are things for everyone now, as the products range from $10-80K. I got so inspired there, and definitely wanted to move in. #ApartmentGoals.

NYC STORIES: BY CHLOE

By Chloe

I finally tried out By Chloe with Pernille the past weekend. I have been told to try it out ever since I moved here, and also been looking at so much Instagram-candy from the place. By Chloe is vegan fast food made with locally-sourced ingredients, which is a concept I’m a big fan of. And I’m telling you the food was so yummy. I’m not really a fast food person, but this was so good. We also got the fresh coconut water, which was just a fresh addition to the meal, and sent me right to a sunny and exotic beach.

NYC STORIES: RALPH’S COFFEE

Ralph's Coffee

On the second floor of Ralph Lauren’s flagship store is the cutest coffee shop hidden. I only discovered it because I googled “coffee shops near me” when I was shopping one day, and saw all the nice photos. It’s a bright café with white interior and Ralph Lauren’s dark green signature color. I had a cappuccino with almond milk and a blueberry muffin. They also had sandwiches and amazing little brownies and cookies. If you find yourself shopping on 5th Avenue, then go visit this cute little spot for an energy break. There aren’t that many places to get coffee/tea on 5th, so I’m so happy to have discovered this place. New favorite!

NYC STORIES: LA COLOMBE

La Colombe Coffee ShopI love discovering new cozy coffee shops in New York. It’s like going on an adventure every time. This time, let’s talk about La Colombe. I was introduced to their coffee a while ago, and visited some of their coffee shops in SoHo, but Friday I found one close to my job, which just makes me so happy. La Colombe is located all over downtown Manhattan, so there are plenty of places to get your coffee fix (not to mention all the million of other coffee shops).

La Colombe is a bit more expensive because is it representative of roasters that originated in the third wave of coffee, which is high-quality coffee making all stages more intense and expensive. They are also one of the early pioneers of direct trade coffee sourcing (no, I’m not sponsored, I just L.O.V.E coffee). Bottom line is that I really think it’s worth the money, and I definitely enjoy their coffee a lot!

If you visit the one located in Chelsea, make sure to walk around to experience awesome graffiti and picturesque industrial buildings, not to mention all the galleries located in this area.

NYC STORIES: AP COFFEE

AP Coffee

Today we’re having coffee! I visited my friend in her Brooklyn-hood on Saturday, and she showed me around the area. One of the places she took me was AP Coffee. An industrial-looking and very minimal decorated coffee shop serving coffee and brunch-like food. As the Spring has now sprung in NYC we both opted for an iced coffee. I had the iced latté, and was very impressed with the taste. Very, very good coffee! (I should probably come back to try the food)
