Is Flatiron Getting Too Big For Its Britches?

We were just in Flatiron for lunch, and boy was it crowded! Cinnamon Snail, Kelvin Slush and Toum (the new Lebanese truck) were all in a row on 5th Ave between 21st & 22nd St. They all seemed to be doing good business too.

On the opposite corner was Cruisin’ Kitchen, one block down was Cambodian Cuisine Torsu, and 3 blocks down was Bistro Truck.

Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into a West 50th St situation, with the police cracking down and ticketing food trucks. Maybe it’s just too early in the month for them to worry about ticket quotas.

Studies say that food trucks do better business when they park near each other, but in NYC, where the laws are not in their favor, it’s probably better to spread out more.
