Travel to Fabulous Morningside Heights with the Times to Relive Your Imaginary Sordid Past!

Written by

The Travel section in Today’s Times features a “local stop” in Morningside Heights purporting to give an itinerary that mirrors the weekend afternoons of real Columbia students. The only problem? When was the last time any student you know went to, for example, A Cafe or the Ding Dong Lounge? Another dubious sign: the article both begins and ends with the phrase “Ah, college.”

To be fair though, a more accurate article would probably include far more time in Butler than most tourists would be willing to endure.
