It could be a while before fans have the chance to “eat mor chikin” there, however, as The Hive is currently under renovation as part of a three-building project.

Chick-fil-A currently operates seven locations in Manhattan. The Atlanta-based eatery notably made headlines in the Big Apple when it opened its largest – and narrowest – location ever two years ago. The five-level, 12,000 square-foot space opened for business in the NYC’s Financial District in March 2018, Eater reports.
