New York Street Vendors

If you’ve ever been to New York City, you’re probably aware of the many street vendors that have a big impact on the city’s hip, street-smart vibe. From Manhattan’s posh shopping districts to historic Times Square and Theater District, you’ll find over 20,000 street vendors selling hot dogs, gourmet food, coffee, ice cream, flowers, t-shirts and gifts to locals and visitors.

Over the years, New York street vendors have played an important part in building the city’s heritage. Many are immigrants who came from poor countries and impoverished conditions to the Big Apple to make a better life for their families. Some are American military veterans who proudly served in one of our country’s wars. New York street vendors are small business people from all races and cultures who work long hours under harsh outdoor conditions, especially in New York’s summer heat and freezing winters. Their struggle to build a better life reflects the true essence of New York’s history, and the people of New York love having them around.

You’ll find over 100 restaurants located within the compact Theater District, from 42nd street to 53rd street, but you’ll need reservations to get into all of them. They stay packed year-round with theater patrons who want to dine before or after a Broadway play. The most popular reservation time is 6:30 PM, early for many diners, but necessary if you want to eat before you see a show. Although there are some world-famous restaurants in this exciting strip, packed crowds and booked reservations may prevent you from getting in. Fortunately, you’ll find fancy food trucks and street vendors in the area who serve delicious cuisine, so you can always find great food. Whether you prefer a quick gourmet meal, kosher hot dog, hot pretzel snack, Italian gelato desert, or cup of cappucino or espresso from a beverage cart, you’ll find street vendors with all kinds of foods to satisfy your taste buds.

Since the early 1900s, street vendors have played an important role in building New York City’s history. Today, city streets are filled with lively street vendors who provide convenient services and great food year-round to New York residents and tourists. Whether you’re looking for an early morning croissant and cup of coffee, a mid-day snack, a late night meal, or your favorite desert, you’re sure to find it on the streets of New York.

Buying souvenirs is a must for me when we are travelling, like today while we are walking at the beach, my eyes are looking for souvenir stores where I can buy postcards or key chains.  These are my souvenir priorities because they are easy and light to carry.  I have noticed though that postcards here in Montenegro are not that popular unlike in most tourist areas we visited in other countries I can find them easily.

Well, today I am already tempted to buy travel logo mugs but when I have thought that the last mug I have sent home was broken along the way.
