Photo by myself around 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.
A photo taken from a cab, Wednesday afternoon.
You can see a Starbucks sign in the background. I tried to figure out how many Starbucks locations there are in Manhattan, by doing a search on the Starbucks website.
There are well over 50 locations in the city. (Unfortunately, the site only allows up to 50 listings per search). Anyway, if you're ever going to meet someone 'at Starbucks', be specific in terms of the coordinates!
I made this mistake a while back when planning to meet my cousin at a Starbucks on the Upper West Side. At the time, there are two that were located virtually around the corner from each other.
There is absolutely no reason not to be caffeinated at all times.
The crazy thing is, I wrote the top part of this post before looking at today's Times. By coincidence, is an article there about...Starbucks in New York (!!)
There are 186 Starbucks in Manhattan. There are more Starbucks locations than subway stations. Mark swears there must have been more at some point. #187 is due to open this Friday.
Yes, there is a Zeitgeist.
Check out the Starbucks article, here.
