For better or for worse, it looks like the chain is finally making good on its summer of 2012 promise to open “three or four stores” in New York. Dairy Queen’s Staten Island Ferry Street George Terminal location — the first in NYC — opened last summer after a lengthy renovations process and Hurricane Sandy–related setbacks. The Union Square–area DQ will occupy 2,500 square feet at 54 West 14th Street “on the ground and mezzanine” of the former Fabco Shoes, which sounds like a pretty large footprint to blanket with Blizzards.
