Reports are in that the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park will close for 5 months for renovations. They will expand the kiosk by 4 feet, and upgrade the kitchen and the basement storage area, but otherwise it will look pretty much the same as it currently does.
No word yet on when it will shut down, but we suspect it will be late fall after the summer season. The Shake Shack will be paying for the renovations (and not the Conservancy or the city.)
