Starbucks is everywhere. If you stand at certain intersections in the city (cough cough Astor Place!), you are within view of 3 different Starbucks! Starbucks is a great place to grab a cup of coffee, eat a sandwich, catch up with friends or colleagues, study, use wireless internet, read the newspaper, or simply just relax. A decade ago, few of us could imagine paying upwards of $3 for a cup of coffee, but nowadays, for many of us, a cup of Starbucks has become a necessity in order to start the day right.
