NYC Starbucks: 47th & 8th

9 Apr


I woke up this morning to a forecast of 80 degree temperature sweeping into Manhattan. It’s now 81 degrees outside, so I’ll keep this entry short and sweet.

The Starbucks on 47th & 8th is one I usually avoid because it’s always brimming with patrons and generates quite the line during rush hours. I know this because it’s only a block away from my apartment. I swear I didn’t chose my apartment based on this, but I can step out of my building and walk only 1 block in three different directions and find a Starbucks — it’s just the nature of this neighborhood.

Today this location is the emptiest I’ve seen it. And I’m guessing it’s because of this unusually beautiful weather we’re having. I came in and grabbed a seat right away. The lines are still long but people are taking their drinks into the streets, the parks, and any other place they can enjoy this heat spell before tomorrow’s forecast of rain.

And that’s exactly what I’m about to do.

The Good:

The Location… In the Theatre District, near tons of transportation.

The Power Outlets… Although seating is limited, they have strategically placed outlets every 8-feet or so near all chairs.

The Bad:

The Lines… It can snake around the entire store.

The Size… Small with seating only bordering the windows.

Restroom… Just the one… although technically with under 20 seats, they could get away with none.

Barista Friendliness:

Service on par.


Drink of Choice: 

Grande Iced Green Tea… I great refreshing summer-ish drink.


Overall Starbucks Rating:

A tiny Starbucks for a grab & go before a night at the theatre.
