The Shake Shack bus is rolling into the East Village later this year, with a location at 51 Astor Place, the Post reports. As early as the fall, Danny Meyer is planting his rapidly growing burger chain inside a 3,000 square-foot ground floor space facing Ninth Street and Third Avenue.
The Shack crew signed a 15-year lease in March after Ian Schrager moved his sales office from 51 Astor leaving the space vacant, the Post writes. Other food vendors inside the building include Chop’t and a branch of Bluestone Lane.
While the number of New York Shake Shacks is plentiful — 24, to be exact — there are currently, maddeningly zero Shacks between 23rd Street and Fulton Center. It’s unclear whether Shake Shack EV will open before or after Danny Meyer’s other East Village project, Martina — currently under construction just two minutes away at 55 Third Avenue.
