Shake Shack Coming to One Old Fulton by Mid-Summer

As we reported last August, the former site of Pete’s Restaurant, One Old Fulton Street (corner of Old Fulton and Water streets) in the Fulton Ferry Historic District, will become a Shake Shack. According to this Eagle story, the owners expect it to open by mid-summer.

    While i don’t particularly think ShakeShack is very good, they are going to do very well in this new location….get ready for lines reaching up the block to Grimaldis. So much so, that the lines will be overlapping each other.

  • Chester Bumerfo

    A provocative development to be sure. I think it shall be pleasing to locals and tourists alike and that it will be another success in our neighborhood.

  • MonroeOrange

    tourist yes…not locals.

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    Local hear. Will be there every day.

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    What a great location! I heard about this going up a few months back and since have seen them building.

  • MonroeOrange

    welcome to the neighborhood, not sure you would be considered local if you are going there everyday…

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    Why not? Just cause I go to a certain place everyday makes me a tourist? But I’ve lived here for 3 years. I go to starbucks 5 times a week. Am I not a local? I’m confused.

  • MonroeOrange

    3 years and you think your local…10 years is min to consider yourself local.

    Welcome to the neighborhood…let me know if you need any advice on things to do…have you been to promenade yet (you can see manhattan from there)…..

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    I’ve lived in NYC for 7 years, BK heights for 3. What do you call call me then if I’m not a local? I’m not sure why you are being rude about it.

    My argument is why does visited certain establishments because I enjoy them make me a tourist? I live here. A tourist is someone who does not have a residence. I like Shake Shack and I like Starbucks along with local places in the area, what the heck is wrong with that and why do you have to hate on that? Just cause they are chains? Not very neighbor-like or welcoming of you.

    I hate when people think just cause they have lived somewhere longer they think they are better than others, or know more. I’m not sure if you are being rude because it’s the internet and that’s the fun thing to do on here, or if you are normally like this.

  • MonroeOrange

    starbucks and shackshack to non locally owned businesses you frequent, according to your own statements 12 times a week…you may think you are local, but you certainly aren’t supporting locally owned business, if your eating ShakeShack everyday (which is what you said) and go to starbucks 5 out of 7 days. I can only respond to the statement you said in your posts.

    Seriously though you should check out the promenade, its quite beautiful!

    Welcome to the Neighborhood!

  • MonroeOrange

    yeah, this is so much better than locally owned Pete’s Downtown….

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    You are missing about 90% of my post my friend.

    How am I not local? Just because I don’t eat at places that support locally owned businesses? Is that the only reason you think this? In my post I also said I visit other local places as well, but you decided to skim right over that part huh? Cherry picking what you want to read so your opinion seems more relevant.

    Your argument is not very valid since you ignore most of my post and decide that since I eat/drink at two certain places I am not a local.

  • Jim

    take your negativity elsewhere, thank you very much

  • Jorale-man

    I have no opinion on whether eating here is for locals or not but it’s certainly not going to improve one’s waistline. I’d almost prefer a Pret a Manger or even a Subway. At least they have a few semi-low calorie options on their menus.

  • TeddyNYC

    Now all we need is to get Dominique Ansel to open a Cronut outpost there so the lines there would become legendary. Unfortunately, he’s busy at the moment taking care of his mice issues.

    Um, Shake Shake IS a locally owned business. It’s owned by Danny Meyer, a restauranteur who lives in Gramercy Park, about 4 miles from this new Shake Shack. How much more local does he have to be?

  • Eddyde

    As mentioned above, Shake Shack is “locally owned” do your homework before opening you stupid mouth.

  • Eddyde

    Yet another example of MO being completely wrong.

  • Andrew Porter

    Not news; reported right here last August:

  • Andrew Porter

    Still an “outside agitator” or maybe even “carpetbagger”…

  • Andrew Porter

    Restaurants come and go, but, alas, vermin infestations are forever.

  • ClaudeScales

    It’s obvious I’m losing my memory.

  • Andrew Porter

    If you use earplugs at night, you can arrest that tendency…

  • Eddyde

    I have lived in the Heights my entire life, over 50 years. I consider you a local. Maybe not yet a New Yorker but definitely a local.

  • BrooklynCoffeeLover

    Thanks. I don’t consider myself a New Yorker at all.

  • ltap917

    Why so snarky? When I was researching neighborhoods in Brooklyn the Heights was considered “transient”. I found that to be true. Most of the people in my building were “out of towners” who had come here to work on Wall Street either in financial services or to work in the legal profession. People moved in and out of the neighborhood so often that once I asked my doorman what had happened to one of my neighbors and he said they have moved TWO years ago. Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, were considered more stable.
    The people who had resided in my building for decades were, for the most part, people in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s who were able to buy a coop when the price was low and the neighborhood was not so desirable in the 70’s.

    Have to love the localism fascism/fetishism. Amazing. P.S. I am pretty sure Danny Meyer’s is a New Yorker.
