Economists at NYCEDC took a look at the listings for all of the coffee shops in NYC. They broke down the numbers by zip code and found that Williamsburg’s 11211 has the highest concentration of coffee shops outside of Manhattan with 31 shops. They also found that 42.7% of the coffee spots in NYC are either Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks. I did a little math myself and that number drops way down to 6.5% in Williamsburg being that there are 2 Dunkin’ Donuts and no Starbucks (for now) within the 11211 zip code.
