NYC Starbucks: 36th & 6th

5 Sep

36th and 6th Starbucks

Today is Rosh Hashanah. It’s the Jewish New Year. It amazes me how ignorant I was to Jewish culture before moving to New York. It’s not that there weren’t Jews in Orlando, Florida, but there wasn’t such a cultural presence as there is here in NYC. I was reminded of my ignorance once again this week as Rosh Hashanah drew near and I had to ask why some people wouldn’t be into work.  Obviously, I’m still adjusting to life here in the city.

Besides being Rosh Hashanah and the week of Labor Day, it is also the first week of the fall semester at NYU. And to top it all off, I’ve come down with a cold. Luckily, Starbucks is an essential part of my “get well soon” treatment. Well… Tazo Green Tea is, at least.

So here I stand in the Garment District Starbucks on 36th and 6th Ave getting my blog on before my evening class in NYU’s Bryant Park classroom building. Why am I standing you ask? Obviously — it’s because there are no seats at this Starbucks. It’s one of those mini Starbucks that fit in so well in Midtown, Manhattan. It’s small. It’s compact. And it’s designed in a way to keep the crowd moving.

The only thing this Starbucks is missing is a revolving door.

The Good:

The Location… Right between Herald Square and Bryant Park  in the Garment District and just east of Time Square.

The Design… Designed with efficiency and crowd control in mind.

The Bad:

The Size… Bite-sized. Just enough room to keep the line circulating from the barista bar to the door.

The Seating… None. Just two standing bars that face the windows.

The Restroom… None for public use.

Barista Friendliness:

3cups

Drink of Choice: 

Venti Iced Green Tea… I always drink green tea when I’m feeling under the weather.

3cups

Overall Starbucks Rating:

A “get in, get out” Midtown Starbucks.

2cups
