The line outside of Shake Shack on any given day is a fairly good indicator of how much it's enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Before going, check their webcam to see how long you'll have to wait (sometimes over an hour, depending on weather and time of day), but enjoy the time outside in Madison Square Park, a favorite that's nearby the famous Flatiron building. The park features a rotating series of art installations and plenty of room for sitting on benches or sprawling on the lawn. After enjoying your Shackburger or indulging in frozen custard (or a "Concrete"—a huge cup of thick frozen custard with delicious candies, fruits and other treats mixed in), head over to Raines Law Room on 17th for some speakeasy vibes. While we prefer the atmosphere of the Shack's original location, the concept is currently expanding across NYC. Try their Upper West Side, Citi Field, Theater District, or Upper East Side locations if you happen to be in those areas. Or, if the line is too long for your liking at the original, head over to Eataly, Mario Batali's 100,000 square foot celebration of Italian food, featuring a grocery store, prepared foods, several restaurants, gelateria, espresso stand, wine shop, and a rooftop beer garden.
