Shake Shack to open in Forest Hills
Are you a fan of Shake Shacks’ classic milkshakes, burgers, crinkle-cut fries and hot dogs? Well, founder Danny Meyer is bringing the second standalone Shake Shack to Queens and this time it will be in Forest Hills.
According to Eater NY, the new Forest Hills location will be at 71-26 Austin Street (hello long lines and traffic jams). The restaurant will replace the empty space that was once occupied by Strawberry, who closed earlier this year due to rent issues. Currently, Queens Center Mall is working on a standalone Shake Shack that will open sometime in 2016. There is no official word on when the Forest Hills location will open up.
If you are craving the burger joint at this very moment, you can head to locations at JFK or within other boroughs and Long Island. The other Queens location is at Citi Field.
