Having nine 7-Eleven’s in New York City just seems so unnecessary. But, the East Village is about to get magic number 10. The new store is coming to corner of Bowery and East 4th Street. There’s already a Subway across the street.
7-Elevens belong in the suburbs. They’re useless in the city because we already have 24 hour bodegas. Same goes for their awesomely greasy-ass hot dogs, we have hot dog carts and Criff Dogs for that.
What NY really needs is a Wawa — Philadelphia’s superior counterpart to 7-Eleven and the only real reason to go to Philly. Wawa is basically 7-Eleven’s cooler younger brother. Their coffee is made out of Jesus’ blood for sure, it’s too good to be anything else.
