I'll be spending two days in Manhattan, all by my lonesome. I'm not interested in gettin' my culture on. What should I do? My boyfriend bought me a night in a Midtown hotel. Awww. However, my stay has to take place this weekend (Fri./Sat.), when he'll be unavailable to join me. I'm shy/nerdy, so this puts the kibosh on super-social activities. However, I'm ALSO not terribly interested in seeing any museums/cultural attractions on this trip. Don't get me wrong - those things are delightful! - but it's spring break, so I'd like my trip to be a lil' more indulgent/eclectic/badass. [more inside]

Last weekend, I found out that my boyfriend's grandmother worked in my office building 57 or so years ago, for about six months, as a secretary for "the first sofa bed company in the United States." (It was their showroom.) Now, the Flatiron offices are entirely occupied by two companies, but then, it held many different small businesses. How can I find out where in the building her office was located? I'd love to take her there sometime so she can see it again.
