Construction on 1 West 125th Street is underway, preparing for the arrival of Shake Shack, moving into the old Applebee’s corner space.
This is located on the north/west corner of Fifth Avenue, across from the National Black Theatre ~ and at the entrance to East Harlem, which is preparing for a number of new projects including the Second Avenue Subway.
Anticipated opening later this year.
This location marks Shake Shack’s second location in Upper Manhattan, joining the Morningside Heights location, former home of Ollies. The menu will feature all our favorite ‘Shack Classics’ ~ ShackBurger, crinkle-cut fries and hand-spun shakes, plus a fabulous selection from local purveyors including Pie Oh My from Lady Lexis Sweets.
