The Coolest Looking Burger King in 1970s New York City

If you happened to be strolling down 5th Avenue in New York City and had an hankering for a flame broiled meaty treat, you were in luck. Because no way would you be able to miss the lively colors that marked a New York City Burger King, even if you were across the street. I have vague memories of seeing these Burger Kings up close and personal, I just wish I had a camera at the time so I could have preserved those memories myself.

If you zoom in on the little advertising window, you can see that they are advertising breakfast. This is before the introduction of the Croissan’Wich in 1983, so most of the items look to be identical to what was being offered at McDonald’s.
