When I first moved to NYC I would stop off at the Starbucks on 70th and Broadway early in the morning on my way to work. Even at 6am this Starbucks would have a strong line and a few people sitting here and there. And clearly, just over a year later, things haven’t changed. Except now I cross the park to get to this Starbucks.
Luckily today the summer weather is holding out and it’s a beautiful sunny day. So instead of waiting for the M66 bus — and I’m still convinced most NYC busses are fictitious — I saved myself $2.50 and took a leisurely stroll through Central Park. And in all honesty, its a brief walk from the upper east to the west and vice versa.
The Location… Just south of the 1/2/3 and near a good amount of shopping on Broadway.
The Seating… A variety of window, high-top, tables-for-two and a communal table.
The Crowd… Consistently crowded ever since I can remember.
Restroom… Just the one.
Drink of Choice:
Grande Iced Coffee
Overall Starbucks Rating:
A crowded Upper West Side Starbucks off Broadway.
