46th is the Site of Latest Food Truck Crackdown
Last month it appeared as if 48th btw. 6+7th might be permanently off limits to food trucks, and today 46th Street btw. 5+6th is looking like it might meet the same fate. Both Schnitzel & Things and Street Sweets were kicked out of their spots on 46th today and told not to come back. We’re not sure if it was an isolated incident, or a permanent directive- but we’ve heard from tipsters that it was a police big wig (i.e. a Lieutenant) and not just a beat cop or the peddlers unit (who make it a daily ritual to hassle street vendors.) Schnitzel moved downtown, and Street Sweets moved over to 52nd and Lex. I guess we’ll see what happens tomorrow if and when Eddie’s Pizza tries to park in the same spot.
