Shake Shack and "Hale and Heardy" among the top-10 2009 Google searches in New York City


Drumroll!

1. cuny portal
2. duane reade locations
3. mta trip planner
4. seamless web
5. conedison.com
6. hopstop
7. hale and heardy
8. shake shack
9. nyu home
10. queens library

Why would anyone have to Google "Duane Reade locations"? Just walk two blocks in any direction and you should find one.

Also!

As EV Grieve reader T.E.V.B, who passed this along, noted, "C'mon people, learn to spell 'hearty!'"

What did other cities look up...?

Ha, thanks, EVG, for putting my quote up there! Is Hale and Hearty really that popular? I guess everyone loves soup. And yeah "duane reade locations"?? Just look out your window.

It is heartening though (even to this cynic) that one of the consistently top searches in every city is the local school/university portal.
