As you might recall, when Chick-fil-A came to New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a boycott because he doesn’t believe in religious freedom. In response, New Yorkers voted with their bellies and wallets. Like everything else de Blasio does, the boycott was a bad idea that went nowhere.
It may even have had the opposite effect! Chick-fil-A is so delicious, and New Yorkers are so tired of being told what to do, that the chain is expanding even further in the Big Apple. Fox News:
The chain announced Monday that it’s building the “largest Chick-fil-A ever” — a five-level, 12,000-square-foot restaurant complete with a rooftop seating — smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan’s Financial District. And since it’s situated just a half-mile from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Chick-fil-A boasts that the new restaurant “will offer unimpeded views of the Freedom Tower” from the rooftop dining area…
However, according to the official announcement, Chick-fil-A’s newest NYC location will also be the narrowest it’s ever built, at just 15 feet wide.
Yikes. Is 15 feet even wide enough for two Chick-fil-A fans to walk past each other?
Just kidding. I’m glad people aren’t listening to lefties who call this place “fried food for homophobes.” Chick-fil-A is delicious, and Dan Cathy has the right to his religious beliefs.
I might pick up some Chick-fil-A right now, in fact. I’m definitely not going to Subway.
