Local News Discovers The “Food Cart Wars”
Following in the Post’s footsteps (who published a story yesterday about “Plantergate”), local news stations WPIX and CBS2 become the latest “real” media outlet to use Midtown Lunch as a source for their stories. WPIX interviewed a “gee-roh” vendor on 52nd & 7th, while CBS2 hit up the Kosher Oasis cart, and both talked to Edgar from the El “Rydell” Sabor cart. Neither station seems to realize these fights have been going on for decades, but their enthusiasm is infectious. And, just like the reporter from PIX said… I can’t wait to see “what happens over the next couple of weeks!”
Check out the two videos after the jump…
Thanks to Lunch’er Joe, and the Kosher Oasis truck for pointing out the videos.
