Tree Lighting Turns 6th Ave Into a Cart Free Zone

If you work anywhere near Rock Center you might want to leave work now, or consider sleeping under your desk tonight. Not surprisingly tonight’s tree lighting ceremony has turned the entire area into a zoo. But what really sucks is the cops have kicked all the street vendors off 6th Ave from 46th to 52nd. Some of the sidewalk carts have managed to find spots off the corners (like the Biriyani Cart, which moved 50 yards West) but trucks are being kicked off the streets entirely. Street Sweets has moved to 43rd St and 6th for now, but the Treats Truck fled to the Flatiron. Kwik Meal seems to be ok, as do the carts on 53rd and 6th (for now). Got any updates? Feel free to put them in the comments…
