God bless the number crunchers. Thanks to NYCEDC StatsBee, the East Village can now brag about having the highest concentration of coffee shops in the city. The New York City Economic Development Corporation broke down the 1,700 or so coffee shops, tea shops and cafes in the city by zip code and created this map.
The results aren't too surprising:
Manhattan neighborhoods have the highest density of cafés per ZIP code. The East Village ZIP code of 10003 has the highest number of shops with 49, closely followed by Midtown/Hell’s Kitchen (10019) with 47. Midtown East (10017) and SoHo (10012) each have 41, and Tribeca/Chinatown (10013) has 40. The non-Manhattan neighborhoods with the highest concentration of caffeine are Williamsburg (11211) with 31 shops, Glendale (11385) with 32 shops, and Park Slope (11215) with 32 shops.
In addition to having the most coffee shops, the East Village also has the most pizza shops and—most important—the most liquor licenses.
