The Chainification of the East Village

New, 5 comments

The folks at The Local went on a quest to figure out just how many chain stores occupy the East Village. A recent survey counted 169 chains in zip code 10003, and The Local calculated that 115 of those are located in the East Village. If those stores, banks, move theaters, and restaurants were lined up in a row, they would occupy a full 16 blocks on both sides of the street. Click through for an infographic and map. [The Local]
