Sonic Says Staten Island ‘Is Being Considered for Development’

On the horizon?

Staten Islanders were no doubt excited by Friday's report indicating the borough might soon get New York City's very first Sonic Drive-In. The Advance says a Facebook user left a comment on the month-old "5,000 fans for a Sonic on Staten Island" group page, saying her entrepreneur father would soon be bringing roller-skating car hops, Coney dogs, malted shakes, and burgers to Richmond Valley. "Staten Island is an area that is being considered for development," a representative tells Grub Street this afternoon, adding, "We have no information to share at this time." [Staten Island Advance]
