At Harlem's First Starbucks, the Magic is Gone

New, 1 comment

Harlem Bespoke reports that the Starbucks at 125th Street and Lenox Avenue, the neighborhood's first Starbucks location, has emerged from a renovation with some minor cosmetic changes and one major one. It's lost its Magic! Specifically, the mural of Magic Johnson sipping from a hot mug of joe. The location was one of the NBA legend's investments in Harlem around a decade ago. Maybe the mural can find a new home in another gentrifying neighborhood? Cross Greenpoint off the list.
