The 8 Friends Every New Yorker Has in Her Circle
Breakfast street carts. Art in Madison Square Park. Weather that refuses to make any kind of logical sense. Life in NYC just wouldn’t be the same without certain things—including these eight friends.
The Group Mom
She’s always on time, she makes the best snacks for book club and she’s the only one who’s on the ball early enough to book that Hamptons rental in advance. Quite simply, she’s a lifesaver.
The Peter Pan
Aka she doesn’t look fondly onto adulthood. Her phone screen may be cracked, but you’ve gotta love her spontaneity and childlike exuberance (regardless of what it says on her driver’s license).
The Pen Pal
You talk on Gchat daily, she’s constantly tagging you in hilarious memes and her Snapchat game is on point. The only thing is, you haven’t seen her in person in maybe…six months?
The One You Pig Out With
Saying your friendship revolves around food isn’t an exaggeration—but that’s totally OK when you have someone who’s always down to get pizza and burgers at Emmy Squared.
The Tough-Love Ally
She pushed you to ask for that raise, she’s a wizard at networking and résumé revisions, and she has zero patience for self-pity. She’s like your own personal Sheryl Sandberg on speed dial.
The Fashion Goals Friend
Whether she’s sporting H&M or vintage YSL, she always looks amazing. You know whatever she’s wearing now will be everywhere in six months.
The One Who Always Knows About Everything Cool
Secret impromptu Grimes concert? The restaurant that’s about to nab a Michelin star but is still under the radar? Killer seats to whatever the next Hamilton is? Yeah, she’s your gal.
The NYC Native
She’s the living embodiment of the painting nails emoji because, well, she’s seen it all.
