Taking it Outside

There's been a proliferation of food trucks around the city. Not a surprise that New Yorkers on-the-go provide fertile ground for them. But it seems not all are welcoming their presence.

Midtown Lunch, a favorite blog of mine because I live and work in Midtown, has been chronicling recent clashes between some of these food trucks and the nearby businesses. The businesses may be feeling threatened by trucks parking near them and looking for any reason to nudge the trucks to move somewhere else. Provided the trucks aren't causing any real problems, should this all be left up to the free market? Survival of the fittest - the best product will draw the customers? It should be interesting to see how it all plays out.
