In additional to the gardens, lawns and cultural programs,
Madison Square Park houses a very important landmark – the Shake Shack. This ever popular establishment has become a neighborhood fixture and offers the most delicious burgers alongside the best milkshakes the city has to offer.
Established in 2004, the Shake Shack is located in the southeast corner of Madison Square Park in the center of Manhattan's Flatiron District. You'll smell the delicious scent of burgers floating from the ivy-colored, zinc clad "green" structure as you are cheerfully welcomed by the Shake Shack staff.
Choose from a delicious Black Angus cheeseburger, Shackburger, Shack Stack, New York Dog, Shack-Cago Dog, and side of fries with, or without cheese. To satisfy your sweet tooth, try one of the delightful frozen custard, premium ice cream shakes or take your pick from a list of Concretes. These dense frozen custards are blended at high speeds with an assortment Shack-made mix-ins, to create the perfect combination of heaven in a cup.
Your order average will probably be around $13 and expect to wait on a long line as locals, tourists and people from all walks gather to enjoy these greasy delights. You can check the Shack Cam online to see what kind of wait to expect, or place your order ahead by phone. So go ahead and take in the beautiful park setting while enjoying your classic American comfort food. Get ready to fall in love at first bite!
As much as I like their food, I can't even deal with the lines. I've never seen such lines before; they literally wrap around everywhere. I'm thrilled when I want to go and there's not many people there -- it's the perfect time to make a run over.
