A Starbucks has opened one block away from the Citigroup Building, and is the first free-standing one for Long Island City.
The brick-and-mortar coffeehouse, located at 26-14 Jackson Avenue, opened Aug. 11, according to an employee at the store.
While the store lists hours of operation at the door, the store will actually be open from 5:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. daily, the employee said.
The Starbucks is in the same building as Chipotle.
