Very rare! A self-standing, drive-thru restaurant in Manhattan. Most fast food resturants in the city have a small space inside a much larger building.  This burger joint is not only free-standing…but it has a drive-thru. I’m not sure, but this is probably the one and only restaurant of it’s kind in Manhattan. One thing I am sure of, there is a lot of development going on in Hell’s Kitchen where this resturant is located. It won’t be long before a developer reaches into their deep pockets and make this land-owner an offer they can’t refuse. 
You better super-size your order, this place probably won’t be around much longer.

Hudson Yards. Hell’s Kitchen. Built in 1987 on the Hudson River, Hudson Yards has been used to take over-flow trains from Penn Station. Prior to the Yards, Long Island trains had to head back to Long Island after the morning rush hour then come back to Manhattan for the evening rush simply because there was no room to store the trains during the day. That is just one of many reasons why Hudson Yards was built. A mixed-use real estate project is underway to build a huge development over the Yards. The project includes several skyscrapers (including one with the highest open observation deck in Manhattan), shops, restaurants, parks and a school. The project will take a few years. I’ll keep you posted!

Chelsea Park. Chelsea. More than 100 years old, Chelsea Park is one of the most popular parks in lower Manhattan. Features include: basketball courts, baseball diamonds, handball courts, golf, plus lots of shade to just sit down and take a load off. If your in the mood for some screams and giggles, take a seat around the seal water feature. Two seals spray water for children (and adults) to cool off.
