Food Vendor War

Food vendors are a sore subject in southern Brooklyn:

[Community Board 10] voted to request that a city-imposed ban on sidewalk vendors within the Bay Ridge 86th Street Business Improvement District be amended to include food carts.

Two thoughts:

1) the city can ban sidewalk vendors in general? I shudder to think what this would do the melted record industry if applied on Bedford Avenue.

2) Maybe we need to acknowledge a borough-wide “war on food”, and declare food trucks the southern flank and brunch the northern flank.
