7-Eleven has launched a full-scale invasion of our fair city, and it's a good thing too, because where else would New Yorkers get cheap coffee and deli meats? At least they're trying to bring us some innovative on-street architecture. From the inbox comes this photo of a brand-new 7-Eleven on 95th 93rd and Amsterdam. Writes the tipster who sent it, "For some reason they have chosen to blight the corner with unnecessary signage and my favorite feature: A lit awning over a brick wall." Maybe they're trying to provide a clean, well-lighted place for customers to eat microwavable burritos?
