Subway Map Plots New York’s Best Coffee Shops
Butterfruit Labs created a map of Manhattan's best java spots near subway stops.
App developer Butterfruit Labs tweaked the map of New York City’s subway and replaced station names with the names of some of the best coffee places in the city.
The map looks like a subway map and shows the best places to have coffee near each subway station. According to a blog by Butterfruit Labs founder Nirmal Banerjee, the locations were chosen based on factors like stop proximity, type of beans, equipment, and customer reviews. If there were multiple stores, the original or most popular location of that store chain was selected, and if some areas didn’t have great options, Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts were chosen.
Butterfruit Labs also discloses on the map that “greater weight was given to shops that are independently owned, unique, or representative of their neighborhood.”
