Petite Shell

New York can be an intimidating and overwhelming place.  For someone like me who needs a lot of wide open spaces and fresh air the city can sometimes push in on me.  Thankfully, I'm also a wanderer and that takes over when I'm there.  This past week I stumbled upon Petite Shell, a delicious pastry and coffee shop on the upper east side.  I was delighted by the airy quality of the space and the design sensibility hugging each wall and fixture.  The kind staff and smell of warm chocolate croissants & coffee didn't hurt either.
