Usually, we’re wary of expansions and chains—it goes against everything we Brooklynites stand for—but, not so with Shake Shack. We just love the place (and work way too close to one). Just last week, we lost it over the news that they’re bringing back their crinkle cut fries this November and now, we’re excited to hear that we can get said fries at the new Barclays Center-adjacent Shack.
Yup, there’s a brand new Shake Shack over at 170 Flatbush Avenue near 5th Avenue. They’re calling it the Flatbush Shack and it’s ridiculously close to the Nets stadium. As per usual, this Shack will have its own unique custard flavor and it goes by the name of Nothin’ But NETS, meaning chocolate and vanilla custard blended with marshmallow sauce, crispy crunchies and chocolate sprinkles.
This will be the third Shack to hit Brooklyn after the Downtown Brooklyn location and the very recently-opened DUMBO location. There are also rumors milling about that a fourth Shack could be coming to Williamsburg, but when reached for comment all the powers that be had to say was this:
@nikitarbk We're huge fans of Williamsburg, but at the moment we don't have anything concrete to share.

Uh huh. We’ve got our eyes on you, Shake Shack.
