Suburban soft serve mecca Dairy Queen will soon be within reach of Manhattanites.

The fast food spot has signed a lease for 2,500 square feet at 54 West 14th Street at Sixth Avenue, a vacant space formerly home to Fabco Shoes. Dairy Queen will take both ground and mezzanine space, which came with an asking rent of $165 per square foot.
