I am arriving at 7th avenue, 27th street, New York by a Megabus around 5.30 AM in the morning. Is there a place nearby where I can wait for my friend for 3 hours ? Again I have a flight to catch at 2 PM from JFK. What all sightseeing can I do in this limited time ? Thanks.

I can not comment. So I am editing my question a bit. How safe is this place so early in the morning ? Unfortunately, I don't drink coffee, so Starbucks is not an option. There is a subway station nearby called 28 street station. Can I sit there instead ?

    You could go to a coffee shop and get a cup of tea or some juice or a pastry or water or something. Consumption of coffee is not mandatory. I would find most options more enjoyable than sitting in a subway station for three hours. – Zach Lipton Apr 17 '17 at 2:36

The classic answer to this question is a coffee shop. There are a couple of Starbucks locations nearby that open at 5:30am (on weekdays, check the hours on weekends), including one very close by on 7th just before 28th St. You could grab a drink, perhaps a bite to eat, and hang out for a couple of hours. Non-Starbucks options are available and recommended too, including Stumptown at 29th and Broadway (opens at 6am weekdays). If the weather is nice, you could wander over to Madison Square Park or (if you don't have a lot of luggage, as it's somewhat farther away), the High Line (opens at 7), or even walk up to Times Square if you've never seen it, and explore by yourself for a bit.

It's hard to recommend sightseeing since you don't have much time and we don't know what you like to do. Do you have any particular interests? Unfortunately, most museums aren't really a practical option, as many don't open until 10am or later, which would leave you with very limited time. You could consider a delicious brunch.

It's absurdly expensive ($100) and I've never done it, but I'll mention only since you're in just the right time and place (if your bus is on time), it's now possible to see the sunrise from the Empire State Building.

Is there a place nearby where I can wait for my friend for 3 hours?

There are 2-3 Coffee/Breakfast shop within sight of the corner, including a Starbucks.

I have a flight to catch at 2 PM from JFK. What all sightseeing can I do in this limited time ?

This is not a particularly scenic area of Manhattan and you ability to move around will be defined primarily by you baggage.

How safe is this place so early in the morning?

There's no reason to worry about this area and at 0530, the morning activity is just beginning.

so Starbucks is not an option

Starbucks sells many non-coffee options. But, how are you getting to JFK? If you are taking a train, you might have a better waiting experience at Penn Station which is only 4 blocks uptown (north on 7th Avenue)
