Sip your coffee from the street-tough, disposable, 10-ounce coffee-to-go cup that has become synonymous with New York City and the metropolitan area. Offering 50 NY Coffee Cups, sometimes called Anthoras, packed in a handy carry-out tray, the world’s most famous paper cup, emblazoned WE ARE HAPPY TO SERVE YOU, printed in Greek-style letters, ubiquitous in New York City since 1963. The cup maintains an iconic status in New York popular culture; it has graced the cover of the Manhattan phone book and is on permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art. It’s been featured as a city-centric prop on TV shows like “CSI: NY” and “Mad Men” and in movies including “Wolf of Wall Street” and “Men in Black.” Makes an entertaining conversation piece and ultimate “high camp” gift for every coffee-drinking city dweller or displaced New Yorker. Beware of imitations.
