New York City has been undergoing a heat wave this week. Basically, this city has been transformed into a concrete oven that heats to 97 degrees and seems to stay that way ALL day. So these Starbucks Treat Receipts couldn’t come at a better time.
The Starbucks on 48th and 3rd avenue is a tiny rectangle with a small barista bar, a row of chairs against the front window. and one long cushioned bench with tables. The neighborhood of Turtle Bay is kind of off the beaten path (unless your heading to a train), so this Starbucks seems to only attract passersby, making the tiny seating area more than enough to hold the crowd.
Despite the fact that it’s small, closes earlier than most and doesn’t appear to have any power outlets, this Starbucks is still a welcoming reprieve from this NYC heat.
The Crowd… A steady flow but it never appeared too crowded and the line never built up.
The Cleanliness… It’s small so it must be easy to keep clean.
The Size… Obviously the Starbucks seating area is small, but luckily it’s in the ‘grand’est of train stations.
The Power Outlets… None that I could see.
The Restroom… Just the one.
Drink of Choice:
Grande Iced 1/2 Green 1/2 Passion Tea
Overall Starbucks Rating:
I don’t want to say run-of-the-mill, but…
