Boo-Hoo! Best Places In NYC To Have A Good Cry

Let’s face it, living in this city can be trying. Maybe your dream date turned out to be a doll collector or maybe your boss just won’t give you that raise, sometimes we New Yorkers just need a good sob. Because Tumblr’s Kerry O’Brien understands our tears, she’s created the NYC Crying Guide to give us a few pointers on where to unleash those waterworks. Have a look here for yourself (because crying home alone over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s just isn’t as fun anymore).

On the Stoop of a Brownstone You Do Not Own

“There is no better way to take advantage of the warmer weather than spending an afternoon crying on a great stoop! Plus – knowing the owner could come home at any moment and see you sobbing on their property is flat out exhilarating….It’s still a wonderful crying spot, especially if enjoyed with an artisan cupcake and thinking about some recent mistakes you’ve made!!!! A+”

The S Train

“If this isn’t the Cadillac of crying spots I don’t know what is!! There are only two stops total on this train so feel free to REALLY let it out because everyone will always be getting off at the next stop…I love to spend my Saturdays riding this train back and forth.”

“Have you ever cried while singing Happy Birthday to an eight year old from Georgia? If the answer is ‘No!” you better get yourself to Rockefeller Center ASAP!!!! The TODAY show is where it’s at: Live television!! Cool famous people!! Awesome gift-giving tips!! And you: blissfully crying through it all!”

The Rink At Rockefeller Center

“If you haven’t cried in the Rockefeller ice rink while pretending you’re Nancy Kerrigan in the 1994 Lillehammer olympics now is a great time to take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself, “WHERE DID I GO WRONG?”

Macy’s Megastore

“This is the mothership!!!! 9 huge floors!! Endless crying nooks…I like to start my cry on the first floor after bypassing the makeup/perfume section and then very slowly make my way up all 9 floors. I stop on the 4th floor for the half-way up fuel stop (Ben & Jerry’s, Auntie Annie’s pretzels) and then continue on to the top of this crying mountain…Favorite sections: home furnishings,men’s loungewear/robes, kitchen appliances, petites, area rugs, and ladies coats.”

Behind a Dog Walker Walking About 8 Dogs

“Yesterday I walked behind them for about 15 blocks crying tears of sheer joy over their cuteness and happiness and oh they were just everything!!!!!!! Then I instantly got really really really sad that they all weren’t my pets so I then sobbed in complete despair for about 10 more blocks before I finally got a hold of myself and said goodbye.”
