For the third year in a row, Dunkin’ Donuts has come out on top amongst national retailers in New York City, with 466 store locations across the five boroughs, up from 429 last year and 341 in 2008, according to a new ranking from the Center for an Urban Future, out today.

Subway came in second with 389 stores and Starbucks came in a distant third, with 256. (Starbucks still beats Dunkin’ Donuts in Manhattan, though, with 194 to its 115 stores). They were followed by Duane Reade, which has 248 New York City stores, and McDonalds, with 241. Walgreen’s, which acquired the Duane Reade brand earlier this year, had 74 locations as of August 2010, when the think tank conducted its third-annual survey.

On the whole, the survey found that national retailers have increased their presence in New York City this year in spite of still-sluggish consumer spending; they have an average of 4.1 percent more stores here now than they did a year ago.

Brooklyn, which has been experiencing a well-documented surge in national retail leasing in recent months, saw the largest gain in store locations of any of the five boroughs, up 5.3 percent year-over-year.

Queens didn’t fare as well. Although the borough registered an overall 1.9 percent increase in retail locations, it also accounted for half of all the zip codes in the city that saw a decrease in the number of retail stores, including Flushing, Sunnyside and Highbridge.
