Who Needs a Chick-fil-A in NYC, When You Just Need to Drive to NJ?

One of the many, many tasks self-assigned in this marathon at the praxeum, is to find the closest Chick-fil-A to HornGirl’s grad school.

We’re Southern, you know, and need our Chick-fil-A and sweet tea fix. Frequently. You New Yorkers just wouldn’t understand.

Imagine our dismay to find there was only one Chick-fil-A in all of New York state. At NYU, no less. NOT convenient. But it has attracted the attention of a local NY council member, who wanting to score cheap points with the #hatechicken crowd, is now calling for the location to be closed.

Just like other protests/boycotts/etc. that backfire, this suits us southern, barefoot, ignorant bigots just fine. There’s a Chick-fil-A at the Woodbridge Center Mall in New Jersey. And I’m quite sure that the Garden State will happily welcome the tax revenue that New York so haughtily turns up their nose up at.

I know a couple of first year grad students already planning their weekly roadtrips. NWWTIYKWIM

    There’s also a Chick-fil-A in the Paramus Park Mall, which depending on where you are in NY State might be easier to get to. Paramus is in Bergen County, where all stores are closed on Sunday (yes, they still have Blue Laws!), so Chick-fil-A fits right in.

    Tough call. Throgs Neck to GWB to Rt 4 to Paramus, or Verrazano to Goethals to i-287 to Woodbridge. Check Google Traffic while you’re on the LIE and make a game-time decision.
