Finally St. Mark's is getting a funky little alternative joint!

What exactly is a Star Buck, anyway. Like a cronut?

Seriously, they have been trying to stave off "gentrification" of Saint Mark's Place and EV for that matter; so far results are mixed and not going their way. Forces at work are going to do with SMP what they did to Astor Place and 8th Street; period, end of story.

It's funny that people associate hipsters with Starbucks even though actual hipsters don't like Starbucks

Have never understood the allure of Starbucks; their coffee is some of the worst dreck I've ever tasted. Over roasted, burnt tasting swill that does a number on my GI system.


Also do not understand people who get up, get dressed (or go in their jammies) to walk a block or so each morning to get a SB coffee. Haven't these people never heard of coffeemakers or coffee pots?

Am not a fan, but can tell you due to a combination of laziness and the allure of the coffee shop, it's part of the *look at me I'm in Starbucks* culture.
