We've all been there before. An unexpected phone call with terrible news, a depressing epiphany, a sudden devastating turn in a book. And the resulting unstoppable deluge of tears. When the floodgates open and you can't stop your face from contorting as your eyes leak, if you're far from a safe space, your first instinct might be to embark on the fruitless mission to find some privacy in NYC. Good luck, sis. In any other city, you could sneak off to some unoccupied corner, but let's save time and not pretend that those exist here. We say the best way to weather ugly tears in NYC is to embrace 'em and strategically place 'em. So here are a few sneaky spots for you to let it alllll out without passers-by uncomfortably avoiding eye-contact.
