Many ex-New Yorkers miss New York City.   Some really, really miss New York City.  Here is a perfect gift for that ex-New Yorker in your life — a ceramic replica of the Greek coffee shop take-out cup!

The famous greek paper cup has been around since 1963. Currently, over 180,000,000 per year are carried out of New York delis full of hot coffee! Due to the vast number of them, the length of time they have been around and New Yorkers’ appreciation for their design, the cup has come to be a quintessential New York icon. It is very likely the world’s most famous coffee cup!

    Actually, I think there’s also a replica leather coin purse… It’s quite charming. I think I saw it at the MOMA store.

    I got the mug. I just can’t figure out how to reproduce the bad coffee from my favorite New York Greek deli.
