NYC Starbucks: 29th & Park

4 Apr

29thandLex

I’ve stumbled upon another behemoth Starbucks in New York City.

The location on 29th & Park is in a small Manhattan neighborhood known as Rose Hill. Not exactly why this neighborhood is named Rose “Hill” since the geography doesn’t seem to differ from any of the surrounding neighborhoods, but I’m not gonna sweat it. This area is referred to as Little India (or Curry Way), because there is a stretch of Indian restaurants and markets just a block away down Lexington Ave. I highly recommend grabbing some naan and  chicken tikka masala in this neighborhood.

Another thing this neighborhood has going for it is this awesome Starbucks. Looking like it was newly renovated, it offers plenty of space to read, write, or chat. It has plenty of lighting, a stylish decor, and a Halal truck right outside if you’re looking for some of New York’s fine cuisine. Transportation isn’t the best in this area, but the local 6-train is relatively nearby. A consistent crowd lurks inside, but this Starbucks is designed to house a good amount of us caffeine addicts.

The Good:

The Size… Very large, with multiple seating areas divided up through out.

The Seating… Seating of every category.

The Bad:

The Location… The whole east side of Manhattan seems to lack proper public transportation.

Outlet Availability… They have them, but most of the seating is away from them.

Barista Friendliness:

Very friendly.

Drink of Choice:

Overall Starbucks Rating:

It’s always a pleasure stumbling upon a Starbucks of this size.

    There isn’t a starbucks on 29th and Lexington… 29th and Park maybe? Haven’t been there since it got renovated but seems to resemble it more closely. Great blog, btw!

      Wow, what a blonde moment that was. I think it’s because I was walking north on Lex and crossed over to Park. Thanks for pointing that out!
