Marty Markowitz and Mayor Bloomberg officially opened the downtown Brooklyn location of Shake Shack today. For those in Dumbo, it is a 15 minute walk (Walking directions from Dumbo to Shake Shack on Google Maps). They are open 7 days a week from 11am-11pm.
From the Brooklyn Borough President’s office:
On Tuesday, December 20, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz joined Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, elected officials and hungry patrons for the ribbon cutting and official grand opening of Brooklyn’s first Shake Shack at 409 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
“Foodies rejoice – the wait is over! The Shake Shack to end all Shake Shacks is open in Brooklyn. I have no doubt this will be the most successful outpost yet with the revitalized Fulton Mall, colleges and universities, courts, government offices, the BAM Cultural District, the soon-to-be-completed Barclays Center and new residents in Downtown Brooklyn all lining up for Shake Shack’s delicious burgers and world-famous shakes,” said BP Markowitz. “Danny Meyer has Shake Shack locations across Manhattan and at Citi Field in Queens, as well as Connecticut, Miami, Washington, DC and even the Middle East—but now he’s finally hit the big time in Brooklyn. Kudos to Union Square Hospitality Group for really ‘shaking up’ the Downtown Brooklyn food scene!”
