Long before the battalion of gourmand-friendly food trucks came barreling down the city’s byways, New Yorkers have been grabbing quick bites from humble nosh carts, perched on nearly every corner in the city. The obligatory baked piles of pretzels and steamed hotdogs are still there, but skewered, marinated chicken and lamb kabobs, fluffy knish pockets, gyro wraps, and falafel pockets now line the iron cooking grates as well. And for a hot treat on a blustery day, grab a paper sack of toasty roasted chestnuts. For under four bucks, you will walk away full in less than five minutes. It’s a BlinkPacker’s paradise.
