Dancing on Shake Shack's Grave

New, 15 comments

Today the Post spotlights the Nolita NIMBY that led the successful charge against the Shake Shack, which was planning to come to Mulberry and Prince Streets before restaurateur Danny Meyer pulled the plug. Debra Zimmerman, a 32-year neighborhood resident, was turned off by burgers being flipped late into the night and vanishing views of the historic St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. It's a heated debate, and here's one restaurateur's take on Meyer: "Here's a guy who almost single-handedly brought Union Square Park and Madison Square Park back to life. You couldn't ask for a better citizen to come to your neighborhood, and they treat him like some sort of criminal dirtbag nightclub drug dealer." [NYP; previously]
