Williamsburg Gets a Boozy Starbucks

After almost 20 years of existential angst over the prospect of a Starbucks on Bedford Avenue, the Northside is finally getting its own chain coffee store. And in true Williamsburg 3.0 fashion, it will serve alcohol. Seems appropriate that the neighborhood’s first Starbucks is going into a former Superfund site, and that its coffee will be extra high octane.
