Not quite sure, I think the place was called Jimmy?s. It is next to the Apple store on Prince, and it was only chosen, because good old Fanelli did not have breakfast. They had omelets, but they were $7.50. So a nice lady with a joyfully British accent recommended Jimmy?s, because of their much larger breakfast selection. Stylish little nest this Jimmy?s. Red lines on black lacquered wood as a theme, many cute pictures on the walls, some drawn on napkins, real diner steel here and there, red pleather seats in the booths. Everybody looked absolutely fabulous. Trained tight bodies in little fashionable uniforms. As for the Cheese omelet? The only cheese the young trained waiter had to offer was swiss and it came with ham. (Oh why?). The ham had to be not there please.
The meal looked nice. It tasted horrible. The cheese were little cold cubes in an egg calzone. The home fries tasted as if they came from a salt mine. The coffee was good. No refills, no real sugar, just those little prepackaged things that create a branded mess on the table.
There was a bearable airport reception even in the far away seats, but the food will keep me away from Jimmy?s for good. The omelet was $10. Coffee $2.50. They did accept credit cards. How come the other patrons looked as if they were regulars. Fascinating.


Anywhere with wireless internet would keep me coming back.

Well, the Apple store is all about free Airport access, of course. And so is Bryant Park. : )
And many other places.

Across the street from Louisa May Alcott's old house is a cafe they have pretty good selection of waffles. And there is a good independent bookstore called Housing Works on Crosby between Prince and Spring street.

I was joking. I can't name one place in Columbia with WiFi (except my house that is). I'm sure you can find even a weak signal on any street corner in NY. However, if I could get breakfast and WiFi locally, that's where I'd be. I can't wait to move out of here.

P.S Your "remember info" thingy is broken.

you did it, the little icon thing, I wrote to my IA teacher and he showed me a link on how to, except I got lost on the icon maker, the one recommended was for windows only. Can you recommend a good icon maker for macs?

the icon thing is very easy, and the editor is as mac as they get, because it was created by the iconfactory and is called iconbuilder pro. It is a professional grade application but it will let you create the favicon file for free. Thanks to the incredibly talented guys from the iconfactory. (yeah!)

And yes Neille you are right, the place is called Jerry?s...

yeah... my remember info is broken in the popup... if you are tired of retyping your info over and over again, just click on the time link and then you will be taken to the individual archive page which oddly enough will remember your info. It is the same code and I can not figure out why it does not want to work here. grr.

Another charming but crappy diner is Emipre Diner on 10th Ave and roughly 23rd St. Jam packed with "regulars" but for reasons unbeknownst to me. My overpriced omellete was chock full of think congealing cheddar and my wife's salad was virtually floating in a sea of dressing. Yet, the place was standing room only, with a short wait to get a table. Astounding.
