Prime members in select ZIP codes in New York and Brooklyn using the Prime Now mobile app can select from four bouquets—named after the Seattle neighborhoods of Ravenna, Fremont, Ballard and Queen Anne—and have their selections delivered in an hour or less for a $7.99 delivery fee, or for no fee if delivery can wait two hours.
