As it is, the office-approved supplies catalog from which I am permitted to order is tragically lacking in swagger. I suppose those little neon document flags count for something, but there’s no denying that the magic is gone.
One of the newest, and certainly one of the most unique, street vendors around town is a tiny cart called Monsieur Singh Lassi Pops.
It’s easy to mock, but where would we be without them?
Taïm is a Hebrew word that means “highly pleasant to the taste,” and it certainly applies to the sabich. You can also get the sabich as a platter, which costs $11, and comes with 2 side dishes.
Oh, bully! Finally, a private island that makes sense.
The Go2Burger is $6 and vanilla and chocolate shakes are $4 (or you can opt for a ‘Shake Shot’ for $1, which is a a nice way to get just a taste, since the full 12 oz. shake is a lot for lunch time. The ‘shots’ appear to be larger than a liquor shot).

After the ice is shaved into a cup, they put on fruit or other toppings, then a sauce. My fruit choices were blueberries, strawberries or frozen grapes. I went for strawberries and frozen grapes, which sounded intriguing.
A local apple-cheeked SUNY New Paltz student and aspiring something-or-other who pulled off a rather elaborate prank on the hoards of silly tourists who clog Times Square and Rockefeller Center summer evenings.
I’ve been on a bit of a hot dog quest lately, and my latest conquest was a chili cheese dog from Snap. They are one of the newer food trucks in town, and are named after the ‘snap” a good grilled hot dog has when you bite into it.
Say what you will about this city, but there’s no denying it is the single most entertaining place on earth.
