Wood infused with New York history crafted by the talented Mark Jupiter

One of the latest Shake Shacks to set up shop in New York also happens to feature some supremely well-crafted furniture from the designer Mark Jupiter. What’s even better is that the stylish set is made from 400-year-old heart pine joists and beams salvaged from local construction sites, such as the defunct Brillo Soap and Arbuckle Coffee warehouses. The project is an excellent use of reclaimed wood, and local talent in the name of more sustainable practices.

Located in a century-old brick building on 1 Old Fulton Street, the DUMBO Shake Shack is also home to a delightful wood-burning stove, and has menu items which draw on the area’s history – such as a dessert new dessert named after the nearby Jane’s Carousel. Apart from all the homely touches, there is also a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline to remind people they’re still right in the heart of New York.
