Not sure if you're still making additions, but lots of west village shops are missing. There's Upright Brewhouse on hudson between Charles and Perry, Panino Mucho Giusto on Hudson between Perry and 11th, 11st St Cafe on 11th between Greenwich and Washington Sts, Kava Cafe on Washington between Horatio and Gansevoort, and Bakehouse on Horatio and West St. I could add if I expand the radius a bit, but maybe someone else can add...
Just added a bunch more coffee shops that commenters listed or emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep them coming!
Great piece! We agree--there seems to be a curious correlation between the emerging specialty coffee scene and the tech sector boom. We distribute Stumptown, Blue Bottle, and others to company offices throughout the city and the large majority of our customers are tech companies.
Happy Bones went out of business (or moved)
Actually, the BRC on Flushing and Washington might help your theory considering it's proximity to the Navy Yard. Also, Chapmion Coffee in Greenpoint is right next to Milk and Roses.
Still missing Brooklyn Roasting Company on Flushing and Washington. Although it doesn't help your theory, it is my regular morning stop and they are terrific.
Hi. The Cafe Grind: it is a pretty nice coffee place in South Hell's Kitchen (477 10th Ave). This is a rapidly developing area of Manhattan. I'm not sure if there are many technology companies in the area, although given the high amount of vacant former factory space, I'm sure they could find a deal on some great floor space.
How about Bean & Bean at 71 Broadway: http://goo.gl/maps/et6Os
You missed Ports, on West 23rd between 7th and 8th!
And of course, there's potential for this kind of analysis on the other side of the Hudson too. Then again, there are only so many hours in a day...
I saw this exact trend in Bangalore, India when we were there in 2005. Gleaming new glass towers full of outsourced customer service personnel (next to piles of rubble in the streets), and coffeehouses everywhere—including my favorites, Barista and Cafe Coffee Day.
Brooklyn Roasting Company, Blue Bottle and Gregorys all added. Any others we've missed? Keep the suggestions coming.
"hippest" - even if that's the case it clearly doesn't make for a good cup of coffee.
Had another $3.75 disappointment on Sunday.
Missed Brooklyn Roasting Company in the Navy Yard, located at 200 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Thanks for understanding! Will update!
Great Map! I'm sure it's a constant work in progress. I want to mention that it doesn't appear to locate Gregory's Coffee or Blue Bottle shops in and throughout Midtown. Hope this helps.
