We got the downtown tour of New York City through Ren's eyes. The Miami native moved to the city to attend The New School and is living in the middle of it all. We met at her dorm around Union Square, whose zip code makes up for the whole living with a stranger in a 4x4 square (even though most of us are doing that in the city, college or no college). From there she took us down thirteen street to Croque Monsieur which is her local coffee house and favorite study hall. The final destination on Ren's tour led us from Union Square to the East Village. We passed through the downtown streets ending up at her best friends rooftop where she has spent endless nights. The spot had amazing rooftop art, full of color and funk that perfectly matched Ren's style.
