Today is the Last Day for Mexico Blvd

Sadly, another food truck bites the dust. Mexico Blvd who have been a regular Friday visitor to Midtown West announced on Twitter yesterday that they will be shutting down their mobile operation after four years in business. The reasoning given on their website is as expected: impossible permitting system and difficult parking laws among others.

This is the second hugely successful food truck to close this year after The Cinnamon Snail bid adieu back in February. And these are just the publicized closings.

Street Vendor Project continues to campaign for lifitng the caps, in order to allow more fair opportunities for small mobile food businesses.

Today will be Mexico Blvd’s last day on the streets. They’ll be parked on 46th and 6th and if you’ve never tried their al pastor tacos with crispy cheese, then today’s the day!
