This is part of a memoir series on my friendship with Renee who I met in college and focuses mainly on our escapades during our late teens and early twenties.
One of my favorite places with Renee was Serendipity. Both being chocolate and ice cream lovers, we would go there for the frozen hot chocolate. Serendipity is on East 60th Street, between Second and Third avenues in New York City. It’s been around since 1954. I first went in the early 80s. It’s kind of touristy but I didn’t realize that back then. It was like a hidden gem to me. What did I know? I wasn’t from NY.
