Pushcarts are iconic to the lower east side and all immigrant neighborhoods going back to the 1800's. They appear today selling pretzels, hot dogs, chestnuts etc. In fact, one way to crack the restaurant business today is to run a successful food truck or pushcart. When I think of "old NYC" I think of pushcarts.
