Roastown Coffee coming to Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place

At those rents, that's gotta be one pricey cup 'o joe.

You've got to be kidding me. Banks and coffee shops. This is terrible.

Agreed with 6:48 Anon. EVG, ice cream or coffee - that's some steep rent.

i bet that they'll be applying for a beer and wine license the first chance they get, and they'll be approved.

Actually, your source wasn't too far off. Despite the name, it looks like they already have one location on 6th Avenue in the 20s, where they do indeed sell ice cream or frozen yogurt or ice milk or whatever that junk is.
