1st Amazon Go Store in New York, #12 Overall, Opens

Three weeks after Amazon opened Amazon Go #11, its third store in San Francisco, Amazon has just opened Amazon Go #12, its first store in New York City.

The newest Amazon Go is located in Brookfield Place, formerly known as the World Financial Center, in the Battery Park City neighborhood. It’s a large complex across from the World Trade Center. Rumors of the store first surfaced back in October.

This Amazon Go location accepts cash, after Amazon faced backlash over discrimination concerns. It’s about 1,300 square feet, so close to the “standard” store format, compared to┬áthe 450 square foot version Amazon is testing in one location in Seattle.

Overall, Amazon continues to roll out its Amazon Go food stores primarily in corporate urban centers, focusing on the grab-and-go use case that most capitalizes on the efficiencies afforded by the computer vision technology that enables the Amazon Go experience.

The TJI Amazon Physical Retail Map has been updated with this latest opening.
