Brooklynites may no longer have to haul across the bridge and wait in endless lines for burgers, dogs, and concretes at the Shake Shack. Or at least they won't have to cross the bridge -- the Daily News reports that Danny Meyer will be opening a Shack outpost in Brooklyn, and it's going mobile.
Unlike the Upper West Side outpost planned to open later this year, which will be a brick-and-mortar affair, Brooklyn will be getting a Shake Shack truck, likely to be parked in Downtown Brooklyn during the week. "The Brooklyn truck could set up shop in the MetroTech plaza for lunch by the end of the summer. The truck is expected to hit other spots on weekends and at night." Presumably, a webcam will be attached to the truck to judge approximate wait time, like the one in place at Madison Square Park.
A spokesperson for Meyers' Union Square Hospitality group, when asked if Brooklyn was indeed the next Shack location, replied, "New York is a city of five wonderfully distinct boroughs. As we expand Shake Shack, we want to think about the city as a whole." Sounds like a yes.
