Emma Roberts: I was staying in the West Village, which is my favorite area now, and I would just go outside everyday and just walk around and wander and sit at little outdoor restaurants and read and hang out and meet up with friends, and it was just the perfect time to be in New York, in April, and I had so much fun.
