I always wanted to visit this place, which has become a bit of a legend over the years. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I will be living around the corner from it.
Red Emma's is a neighborhood coffee-shop, a bookstore, and a community center rolled into one. It offers free Wi-Fi, really good coffee, and a wonderful atmosphere. The selection of books is perfect for me because it has every theoretical volume I could ever need or want to read. For the past 6 weeks I had to blog from a Starbucks and it's a relief to be able to go online in a great environment like this one.
Here you can find the biography of the Lithuanian Emma Goldman who inspired the coffee-shop's name.
