The Empire State Building Will Soon Have Three Starbucks, Jittery Employees

If your desire for coffee is slightly less than your desire to avoid walking across the street and you also work in the Empire State Building, congratulations! You're about to get not one, but two new Starbucks cafes, making it the first and only NYC building to contain three Starbucks in total.

Commercial Observer reports that the coffee giant has just signed on for an express (meaning no seating) store on the West 33rd Street side, as well as that forthcoming delivery concept we told you about that'll be located inside of the building. That, plus the existing two-level Starbucks on the West 34th Street end make it so that four of the Empire State Building's 102 floors will contain a Starbucks. Sounds about on par with the rest of the city, at least.
