Street Sweets Returns to the Eye of the Storm
Just got some surprising news from the Street Sweets Truck, who seem to have been doing well at their spots on 50th and 6th, and in front of MoMa. This morning they will be returning to their first Midtown spot on 55th Street btw. 5+6th Ave… the one they were kicked out of by Pret and Bistro Milano back in June (with a little help from the cops and fire dept.) Their email didn’t really give an explanation as to why they think now is a good time to put themselves in harm way, but they seem pretty optimistic, even if it ends up just being for a “limited engagement.” The truck plans on getting to the spot early this morning, but won’t open until 10:30am (so as not to step on the toes of the coffee vendor who parks on that same block.) I guess we’ll see what happens…
A quick update from the owner>>
“So many people have asked us to return [to 55th] over the several months that we have been exiled. Yes the other locations are doing well, however we wanted to also mix it up a little bit, and not be on 53rd St three days a week. Oh yes, and wasn’t it about our noisy generator muffler that precipitated Street Sweets being ushered off of 55th St. in the first place? The same generator muffler that “now” gives off zero noise…” Good point.
