Signed, Sealed, Delivered

In December, Amazon launched a same-day delivery service confined to a single zip code in New York. This week, the service expands to the entire island of Manhattan, with other locations to be added throughout the year. The program, Amazon Prime Now, is available only to Prime members and offers free two-hour delivery between 6 a.m. and midnight—and one-hour delivery for $7.99. These ultra-fast delivery options are limited to certain products, including books, paper towels, batteries, shampoo and toys. Interested Manhattanites can access Amazon Prime Now through a companion app of the same name. —Michael Dukas
