Because the Times article and the subsequent press release just weren't enough Shack Action, we sent an Eater operative to the newly unleashed Manhattan Shake Shack sites—what will be a one story building on 86th Street and Lexington and the ground floor of the InterContinental hotel being built on West 44th and 8th Ave—to get a look at the present status. Both are, of course, in raw plywood states as they're set to open towards the middle of next year, but let the imagination take over here. And get excited.
Also of note: Burger Joint may no longer be the coolest burger spot inside a swank hotel.
