* Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz lives at 950 Fifth Avenue in NYC -- a vertical bastion of billionaires with just seven residences
* From 2007: Howard Schultz pays $25 million to $30 million for a Fifth Avenue apartment
Strangely enough, there is a 2-br rental unit in this building. Maybe this unit was once servants' quarters? The description even mentions the "lovely neighbors."
This description, however, is very peculiar and seems like it was written by someone who is either semi-literate or whose mother tongue is not English.
Building is located literally across the street from central park so you can not avoid the most beautiful thing about new york city, with 24hr doorman and laundry facility and is pet friendly with live in super and lovely neighbors. The apartment has southern exposure with sunlight all day and great views, with large living room and great size bedroom with a sunny kitchen with dishwasher this apartment is perfect.

Glad you can live in such opulence on the backs, blood, sweat, tears and frustrations of your baristas and shifts Howie. I'm sure he's named it the Playbook Palace...

Oh those poor coffee workers, tied to the plantation. If baristas don't like the jobs, they can quit.

Howard can live anywhere he wants to - he deserves it!!! As a partner for over 6 years I have more money in my 401k and stock grants are amazing!!! I worked for another company for 25 years and they didn't come close to providing my retirement opportunities!! Very appreciative of his vision and passion! Thank you Howard!!!

Nobody, regardless of the job they do, is worth being paid over 500 TIMES more than his/her average line worker. Yeah, his vision and passion for himself puts him in this obscenely opulent castle while any barista in one of his stores, can't afford to live in the worst pit. Yeah, yeah, entry level, blah blah blah, claw your way up the ladder, blah blah blah - entry level shouldn't be starvation level.
Howard certainly isn't the only one guilty of this behavior. My point is that posters like Jodi and Maggie, by enabling the view that the situation is somehow not only OK, but good for them, have swallowed way too much koolaid.

Well said Jodi! I agree! Thanks Howard for all you have given me and enjoy your second home!

My Boss Howard Schultz has worked long and hard and started from the bottem with an idea! I am glad he has what he has! He has earned it as I have. I work hard make a some money have stock options, a 401k, insurance for myself and partner and I stand behind the Starbucks standards and the mission statement. I enjoy my job! So if you have something to say look back has it not always been this way and My Boss does things others do not do....I would be here all night...but get over it or go somplace else...or talk to the President it is not My Boss's fault. It has always amazed me how so many point and say look what they have and how they got it! Well go do what he did you can and trust me if you do you will be on a page like this!

Howard sold out the day he went to lean thinking and how can I possibly squeeze out as much blood from my store workers as possible. I worked with teh old Howard, the god of coffee when he wrote his original opus "Pour your heart into it" book and really fought for his workers and did the right thing. Before the market crashed, before he killed our bonuses, before he cut labor 15%, before he killed our cleaning labor budget and non-coverage hours, before he killed the match (don't forget we had four years where he they didn't match but 1 or 2% or our 401K), before he made SIP much less desirable, before he effed us over on our stock options and developed this new system that is not as profitable to the average worker. I once drank the caffinated Kool-Aid before Howard decided he would make a $15 million dollar bonus the year I had to work 80-90 hour weeks as a SM because he decimated my labor at Christmas time after blowing smoke up my tookus in New Orleans promising a wonderful laptop to every store. He lost all my respect when he sold out and went "Onward" with his greed. Jodi and you other trolls from corporate, go work in a real store for two weeks and then you can post instead of hanging out in corporate.

Amazing Grace: If you already quit, then why are you still there?
