One of the best burgers, most famous quick eats, and longest lines is coming to Downtown Brooklyn – Shake Shack.
The modern day “roadside” burger joint is set to open in Downtown Brooklyn in 2011 and is taking over Tony’s Famous Pizza space at the Fulton Street Mall. (One of New York City’s most populated shopping destinations outside of Time’s Square.)
This will be Shake Shack’s first borough location outside of Manhattan (besides the one in the Citi Field ballpark). Most famous for the burgers, concretes, and outdoor wine consumption, you can view the length of the line through the online Shack Cam and if you’re lucky, you might even see some famous faces.
Shake Shack first opened in 2004 in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park. With five locations in New York City, one in Saratoga, NY, and one in Miami, Brooklyn is excited to be the new home of the New York City icon.
Besides giving back to the community, the green activities that Shake Shack is involved in fit right into the Brooklyn culture. According to the website, not only does the restaurant practice on-site composting, the cooking oil is recycled into bio-diesel fuel, and some of the new locations are made out of sustainable materials. Will the new Downtown Brooklyn location offer any green improvements to the site?
