Yesterday was the official opening of the Brooklyn Beach Shack, a concession locted next to the “beach” adjoining the pop-up pool on the Pier 2 uplands of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The shack will serve burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, and soft drinks during pool hours. From the time the pool closes at 6:00 p.m. until the Shack closes at 11:00, beer and wine will be available. In the photo, Shack manager Tracee Loran, State Senator Daniel Squadron, and concessionaire Glenn Markman toast the Shack’s opening.
Your correspondent sampled the Shack Burger, while Sen. Squadron dug into the 1834 Burger (commemorating the year Brooklyn was incorporated as a city). We both thought our respective burgers (to steal a word from our man Karl) “DEE-licious.”
