Too Hot For Roosevelt Island Starbucks To Remain Open This Afternoon Without Air Conditioning - Thirsty Customers Turned Away
The temperature read 88 degrees today
at about 4PM which proved to hot for the Roosevelt Island Starbucks to handle.
Thirsty and hot customers faced locked doors
and were reluctantly turned away
by our Roosevelt Island Starbucks Baristas who were working without air conditioning in the 455 Main Street Store. The air conditioning at the Roosevelt Island Starbucks is frequently out of service during hot weather.
Those who bought their Starbucks before it closed were able to enjoy their drinks
outside on the patio, which was cooler than inside the store.
Despite the lack of air conditioning and temporary closure today, in my view, the Roosevelt Island Baristas do a great job serving our community
