Shake Shack Battery Park City

Categories Food

Slowly, Danny Meyer's Shake Shack is changing the landscape of the burger world. It started in Madison Square Park in 2001, with a hot dog cart created by Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy's first art installation. Fans of the cart lined up for three summers until USHG won the bid to open a permanent park kiosk. Then the real fun (and lines) started. The "roadside burger joint" started serving incredibly juicy burgers on potato rolls and rich, thick, creamy custards with mix-ins (concretes), and the best Chicago-style hot dog outside the Windy City. It took until 2007 for the Shack to stay open through winter, but it's since become a New York institution — and spread beyond its borders, immediately ranking among those locales best burgers. Menu additions, mash-ups, and location-specific items have followed at newly launched Shacks in New York, Connecticut, Florida, D.C., Philadelphia, the Middle East, and now London. Location specific items at the Battery Park City Shake Shack include Wall-Nut Street, Lower West Side, and Downtown Butter Brown concretes. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

This famous shack probably has the best downtown burger, and the Wall-nut Street shake (chocolate truffle cookie dough, walnuts and cherries mixed into vanilla custard) is a force to be reckoned with.
Steve Lemson
The most overrated burgers in New York. Don't waste your time.

Home to some of our favorite burgers in the city, cheap and otherwise.

Enjoy no line waiting on weekends.

Beware.. People make a sport of getting in line and 'holding spots' for their posse, team, etc. That's how you go from next in line to 8 people behind the person next.

The corndog is perfection on a stick!: a Vienna beef dog encased in a crunchy on the outside, moist in the inside chile-spiced corn batter-zing! no condiments needed; only sold on 7/4 or 7/3

If you have a gluten allergy you can ask for your food sans bun!

Come on the weekends when all the fidi workers are home. Short wait unless someone places a bulk order. I must say that I like the fries here better than msp
