The rumors about a Shake Shack going into Battery Park City turned out to be true. Will these ones? The Daily News hears that both Shake Shack and Atomic Wings are in talks with Zamperla, the folks that run the newly opened Luna Park in Coney Island. The Shack is in the midst of an expansion tear, so a new location, and the first in Brooklyn, is not so out of the question.
At this point, Shake Shack will not comment, the Atomic Wings owner says "it would be a good fit," and the current boardwalk tenants are none too thrilled about the idea. The owner of Shoot the Freak and Beer Island tells the News, "We stayed in Coney Island and we kept that place alive for Zamperla to come in...We're going to be the sacrificial lambs here." Zamperla is letting all leases expire before deciding on the tenants for 2011.
