I hate Shake Shack. When I lived on the UES, I would avoid walking down 86th Street on my way home from work because of the smell of grease emanating from there. And I love burgers and greasy food. Theirs is just not good, in my opinion.
Sorry, you don't qualify to be a New Yorker after saying those hurtful things. Your native status might be revoked.

So what you gonna walk onto the Bx15 and tell everyone on board to lose weight? I mean I see your point but there's no way to prevent people from being overweight. Its part cultural and part hereditary. Take into account lower income people don't have healthy food options and it's a wrap.

Am simply saying that one is allowed to have an opinion or speak their mind on the matter or whatever when their money goes towards the issue.

Sometimes it isn't even diet or hereditary. Certain types of medicine can unfortunately cause weight gain as well.


There are people of all different shapes and sizes in the world. You can't change it.


Not everyone who is fat is unhealthy just as not everyone who is thin is healthy. I know a woman in her mid-30's, she is 5'3" and around 98, 99lbs or something... her cholesterol is through the roof, she eats like garbage, she doesn't work out... she is unhealthy and her doctor said so and now she has to change her diet.


I'm just saying... I don't think it is right or fair for us to judge people. We don't always know what's going on as an outsider.

Another nasty place is Starbucks. Every transplant loves drinking and eating at that garbage place. Up to this day, I don't get why people would spend 6 bucks on coffee from Starbucks, when Starbucks coffee is super disgusting.

The coffee is literally *burnt*. Avoid it like the plague, even when invited. Some time ago, was given a gift card to the place, and even then, was hesitant to eat there, but went out of guilt, as the amount given to me was rather sizable. The coffee making there is *robotic*. Food is loaded with GMOs and mainly uninspired. Things you can pop in the *ZAP* microwave or whatever.

But you are like the opposite of Kefir King. You go organic.
