The plaza is anchored by the property's famed Brooklyn Bridge.

"There has never been a more exciting time at New York-New York," said Cynthia Kiser Murphey, the hotel's president and COO.  "With the opening of our new plaza, we have created an engaging pedestrian environment with the striking backdrop of the New York-New York skyline and know that Tom's Urban and Shake Shack will bring the fun experience and fantastic flavors our guests love."

With patios overlooking both MGM Resorts International's upcoming park and entertainment district as well as New York-New York's iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the new location will be Shake Shack's first in the Western United States.
