Little skips is my place when I need to refill my energy with some morning sunlight. The big windows facing the street let all the light in while you can drink some coffee.
My favorite thing to eat is the grilled cheese sandwich with some avocado. Out of rush hours or weekend mornings, it's a pretty good space to take your laptop and get some work done.
The High Line is an amazing architectural achievement, building a massive park on a disused elevated subway..it's possibly the more beautiful piece of public works recently completed in Manhattan. I actually prefer the view from the highline than the park itself, giving the chelsea area a feel of a scene from Bladerunner if it had a kiddie park built into it.
