Progress At Starbucks

There has been a lot of progress at the soon-to-be-beloved Starbucks, on Avenue A and St. Mark's Place!

Here is the green mermaid-head sign, taken one week ago:

Mermaid-head sign.

At the time I took this picture, the name had yet to be painted onto… the place where they paint the name.

Three days later, it was there!

Walk, to Starbucks.

It's stippley!

There was a small tear in the plastic covering the door, so I took a picture inside — it's mostly reflection, but you can see inside a little bit:

A little bit.

The minutes are ticking down to the grand opening — if I pass by that day, I'll be sure to check out if anything is free!

  1. that third photo ('a little bit') - very cool!


  2. i wonder if they will put another 'mermaid' sign on the other side of that corner, so there is a logo that can be seen on each streets? instead of having to go around the corner to see what business it is?


    1. My guess is it's only Avenue A foot traffic they need to attract; people would already be walking down St. Mark's to get to the park.

    2. just walked by there - they have the logo sign on one side and the big one on the other.
