We received another tip from a pretty reliable source that the storefront at 547 West 142nd Street at the corner of Broadway will definitely be a Starbucks. Some folks mentioned that the owner of Anchor Wine Bar has this spot planned for a new pizza joint but this is not that location. Neighbors who grew up in the area mentioned that Starbucks did arrive many years ago in Hamilton Heights on the Broadway corridor but the less expensive latin coffee shops in the area had better brew and the demographics did not really want the more pricey commercial option. Now boutique java joints have since then been doing well in this section of West Harlem in recent years so it will be interesting to see if Starbucks does better this time around. Although the Broadway corridor has had past difficulties with the chain, other uptown locations such as 125th Street, 145th Street and FDB have done well in the past decade.
