As if we didn’t have enough fried chicken in New York City already…
Slated for the building right across from the Barclays Center, controversial fried chicken chain Chick-fil-A is set to open their 7th New York City location. The soon to be restaurant will be located at 166 Flatbush Ave and will occupy more than 14,700 square feet.
While this conservative Christian chain has faced much controversy over the years, including boycotting by gay-rights activists and other socially progressive groups, their fried chicken sandwich seems to keep bringing the customers right on through their doors.
In the past three years, the restaurant has opened six locations across the city, with five locations in Manhattan and one in Queens. This will be their first Brooklyn location although the opening date is still not set.
