NYC & Croton on Hudson


The ubiquitous food car.


Not only is their a cart on almost every corner, it describes NY in a microcosm. The fast paced New Yorker that needs to grab food or coffee on the run, the DIY attitude of the city. And perhaps most importantly it captures the immigrant experience, from the knish, to the Dolsa, to Halal, to korean bbq, to french crepes. The stands represent the diversity of food, culture, human aspiration, independence and the economic struggle to survive. All of these experiences converging over lunch at a nomadic food cart.
