The McDonald's at 1750 Soldiers Field Rd. in Brighton is old. How old? It's so old the franchise owner had to file a formal declaration with the city Landmarks Commission to determine whether it was of any historic interest and possibly worth saving. Read more.

No word if it's being replaced by a juice bar, which seems to be the thing in Chinatown these days. The Chinese-language Dunkin' Donuts seemed to be doing a thriving business down the street today.
