New York Street Food
New York street food is really good, honestly! Over the years, I’ve seen food carts become more professional and the quality increase tremendously. Now they really bring in the crowds, especially in Midtown and Financial District. You’ll see a lot of food carts primarily catering for the office workers, grabbing a quick bite on their lunch breaks. In these areas, there are a wide variety of delicious foods on offer. So, whether you’re heading to a Broadway show and want a quick bite, or just want to explore the different cuisines available, (New York is the melting pot after all!) I highly recommend trying some New York Street Food.
