Why is New York coffee so bad?

A local coffee shop that I frequent carries Barista Magazine. Though I’m not a “coffee nerd,” I pick it up to pass the time, and I noted an article which mentioned that the coffee is New York City is shockingly bad. Not that it is as bad, for example, as the coffee in Billings, Montana (no offense Billiings!). Rather, for a city famous for its food & culture it seems surprising that one would have to rely upon Starbucks as the font of all bean goodness. So what is it? Do people here disagree?*
