Oh New York, your coffee game is so strong. There are so many places to get a mind-blowing cortado, we could go to a new coffee shop every day and never have to set foot inside a Starbucks.

But what about the shop with the cleanest bathroom? Or the best place to cram for the GREs? Or the top spot to rack up more Instagram followers?
