Bill de Blasio may never manage to get those taxes raised to pay for universal pre-K. He may never figure out how to rewrite the "tale of two cities." But here's one thing you can take to the bank*: If your coffee sucks, he'll let you know. "About two years after he started coming in almost every day," recalls Nick Kolosakas, owner of Park Slope's Little Purity diner, "he comes up, he puts his hand on the counter, he looks at me and he goes, 'Nick, I love your place, but your coffee sucks.'" And according to Yelp, it may continue to suck to this day. 

*Don't take this to the bank, you'll just confuse people.
