New Neighbor: Gasoline Alley Coffee

Coffee lovers and caffeine addicts: there's a new player in the neighborhood...welcome Gasoline Alley Coffee, located at the heart of the district on East 23rd Street at Madison Avenue.

Gasoline Alley Coffee was founded by Nick Carnevale a native of the United Kingdom and Neville Ross who hails from South Africa. Carnevale’s family had espresso bars and restaurants in Italy, so opening a coffee shop came naturally to him. For their first retail storefront, Carnevale and Ross wanted to find the perfect location for a coffee shop in NYC where they could combine their passion for coffee and community. After extensive searching, they finally found a spot on Lafayette Street, on a strip that was to referred to in the 1960’s and 1970’s as “Gasoline Alley” for being a hub for mechanics and service station.

The Flatiron District outpost is the third location in the city, where premium artisanal coffee is served alongside teas and small snacks. “We have always enjoyed the energy of the Flatiron neighborhood and the park atmosphere,” said the co-owners. “We have been looking at locations for some time now. Small spaces that fit our energetic grab and go concept are few and far between. When this small location became available we felt it would be a good fit for the Flatiron community. [It is] a perfect platform for us to share our passion for coffee by serving excellent coffee in a fast-paced environment consistently, with unapologetic enthusiasm and friendliness.”

Hours are Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
