Fulton Street Mall--Gentrification or Progress?
For those of you who have had to suffer through the confusing bus detours to get to downtown Brooklyn, fret no more. Most buses are back on the strip of Fulton Street that cuts through the mall, and just in time for holiday shopping.
At the end of the strip, you will see signs of gentrification or progress, depending on your point of view, when Danny Meyer's Shake Shack takes over Tony's Famous Pizzeria's spot on Fulton and Adams Streets. Tony's, which has been at that corner for over 20 years will move to Bond Street and Fulton.
The facelift is all part of Fulton Mall's push for new business. Some of the names set to join Shake Shack are H&M, Sephora, Filene's Basement and Aeropostale.
