It is about to get easier for Brooklynites to Eat Mor Chikin.

Chick-fil-A has signed another lease in New York City across from the Barclays Center at 166 Flatbush Avenue, according to property records. The lease — signed on July 19 — leaves the terms and square footage unclear. But the one-story property currently spans roughly 14,700 feet, according to PropertyShark.

Michael Pintchik, a local property owner, is the landlord. He purchased the site for $8 million in 2005 and previously said he was planning to open a three-story sports bar there called Kings Town.

Pintchik declined to comment. Chick-fil-A confirmed that they are pursuing a Brooklyn location but said in a statement that they “are still early in the process.”

Chick-fil-A announced plans to open its first franchise in New York City in 2015 at 1000 Sixth Avenue.  It now has five locations in Manhattan and one in Queens, but this appears to be its first location in Brooklyn, according to the company’s website.
