Looking for a place to sleep in your car? Try Front St a block or two down from this store. Late at night and on weekends the area is almost dead (except for occasional skateboard punks) and you are not likely to be bothered.

This is a very old photo of a store that has since been expanded and remodeled to be the flagship store for the city, and perhaps the company. Inside you will find a replica of the counter at the Pike Place store, a media wall, a merchandise counter selling t-shirt, and always throngs of customers.

Additionally, across the intersection in the Times Square Visitor Center you will find an adjunct kiosk.

Also, check out the cool tile in the bathroom...

This store is unusual in two respects--check out that cool flag with the Starbucks logo. And inside, morning rush customers pour their own coffee from holders set out on a counter. The local art displayed on the wall (at least when I was there) is really cool. This is also Second store I've encountered next to a Sandella's (a crappy delicatessin, if one can so judge based solely on one croissant).

Oh, and let's not forget to point out one the view of the two World Trade Center towers in the background.

This location has plenty of style throughout. First thing you'll notice is a large mural on the back wall depicting an audience dressed for the theater.

Plush curtains and mirrors throughout the store, including some that server to block the light coming in the ample picture window. I do think the corporate-style furniture classes with the unique couches, benches, and tables. And the overhead lights--I can only describe them as funky because I don't know what else to say.

Ditto.

And also, this was the first store where I noticed the "ESTD 1971 STARBUCKS COFFEE COMPANY" sign, in frosted text, on the window, in a style that matches the 30th anniversary t-shirt.

The stone interiors, common in NYC stores, are a nice touch, but what I really like is the stone archway right in front of the register. Stand underneath it, and you can imagine that it will become a portal to another dimension.

This was the best photo I managed to get before being stopped by NYPD, claiming no photography was allowed in the area. I was suspicious of his claims, but given that over 1000 people were being arrested over in Manhattan that week during the Republican Convention, I couldn't take the chance. So go vote for Bush and ensure that Ashcroft can continue to keep us safe from those evil terrorists!

This store is as large on the inside as it looks from the outside, and perhaps a little too large.
