The next place I'm recommending is most definitely a place that will be very familiar to all of you.  
Although there are quite a few Starbucks near Baruch, the best one to get some reading done is located on:

424 Park Avenue South 
New York, NY 100168022 

I go to this location often mainly due to ample amount of sitting available to the patrons.  Don't get me wrong, it's always busy, but you'll always still be able to find a seat! 
But be nice and share your table with others :)

Another great thing about this location is the amount of natural light that you get through the windows.  Other locations can be a bit gloomy and dark, which can set the mood for a nice nap when you need to "get it together" and finish that last minute assignment of yours!  

Check it out and let us know how it goes! 


The library is my Ambien... and most likely, yours as well.  But the fact is, we have things to get done! 
So the team here at survivingBaruch searched around and found some great places for you to try out when you need a breather away from the stuffy library.  

5 E 27th St (btwn. 5th and Madison)
New York, NY 10016
(212) 686-1444

This place is a gem. I'm actually contemplating whether I should give this information away... 
Not only do they serve the best coffee, tea and hot chocolate, they also serve beer/wine/sangria!!  But wait, you shouldn't be drinking while studying... cross that!  And what else? There's no need to step out of the place to get a good meal; their seasonal salads are awesome and so are their sandwiches. 
But most importantly, they have the whole second floor designated as the 'library' and free Wi-Fi. 
 Check Birch out and let us know how you liked it! 
And make sure you come back for Part II coming soon for more suggestions! 
Yes we know.. the busy schedules & limited amount of disposable income limit our options for food in the upscale area of flatiron district.
Still there are some nice joints in the vicinity of our school that satisfiy the taste buds without making a hole in the pocket! 

Here are some places that are loved by baruchians..


This cool place right in the Madison Square Park offers hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, milkshakes and much more! You can love it or hate it but can't ignore it!!


I mean, what can you really complain about? 
It's "Subway". They serve sandwiches, that are made like every other Subway. This store is smaller than most Subways…but dont you have ample space in library to dose off? :P

They are right across the street & they have the FebruANY promotion going on currently.. So why miss?? 
Click the image to find out the exact location..
Btw, if you are actually clicking the image.. Where were you this entire time buddy!!!


Here's the deal! There is nothing glamorous about this place that makes it stand out aesthetically. However, they have the friendliest bartenders in the city. After 3 visits they will know you by name. Their pub food is great. As far as sports go, The Hairy Monk is Red Sox central and if you're at all opposed to Boston teams then just avoid it during game time unless you want to get in some idiotic drunken fight!! Usually after socials you would see many grads heading towards this watering hole for late night drinks.



$2.50 gets you a decent slice of pizza. Steps away from the VC building, you can grab a quick slice inbetween classes. Thumbs up to their Grandma's Slice. Go easy on their sauce with its extra helping of pepper unless you don't mind a kick! & dont blame us if you order their cheese ravioli. We already warned you.. Keep It Simple & Slice :D
