Starbucks to Open New Location in Queens Plaza

April 8, 2019 By Christian Murray

Starbucks, the global coffee giant, is opening a new location in the heart of Queens Plaza.

Signage has gone up for the new storefront at the corner of Queens Plaza South and 27th Street. The coffee shop is going in on the ground floor at 42-10 27th Street, a newly-developed, 20-story building that is right next to the Queensboro Plaza N/W station.

The new location will be the second Starbucks storefront in Long Island City south of Queens Plaza. The company got a foot hold in the area when it opened at 26-14 Jackson Ave. in August 2017.

Several cafes have opened in the Queens Plaza/Court Square area in the past two years. Toby’s Estate opened at 26-25 Jackson Ave. in 2017, while Sweetleaf opened a new location last month at 28-10 Jackson Ave.

Starbucks’ corporate office could not be reached for comment.

Good, all these condos withnothing to show for it. It’s a shame they’re making people pay so much to live 4 minutes away from shootouts and the smell of burnt coffee beans. Lol must be nice.


I love the cynical nature of MRLIC, but people will always buy coffee. Hopefully this will help make that stretch under the train a bit nicer as opposed to walking by a plywood sign, a convenience store, smoke shop, and pawn shop


Just remember this fact.In the last recession in 2008 , the first thing people gave up was their $5 Latte’s. What do you think will happen in the next recession ? There will be another one too as Banks haven’t learned from the last one.

maybe learn English

You don’t need to capitalize latte or banks, and you don’t need an apostrophe to pluralize words.

You make a great point though, wealth is concentrated at the top where it only benefits the ultra-rich elites like Trump. Surely you’d never vote for him, otherwise you’d be a giant hypocrite!


You don’t need to correct people’s grammar when it is easily understandable. Complete distraction from the topic and shows a lack of ability to focus
