Prospect Park May Get Non-Pretzel Food Vendors
Taking a page from Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Tavern on the Green parking lot, Prospect Park may soon employ food-cart vendors peddling more than pretzels and hot dogs.
Per Park Slope Patch, the Parks Department earlier today released a request for proposals from mobile food vendors for parks throughout the city. The department, reads the proposal, "will view favorably menus that are inventive and interesting, serve a variety of options beyond hot dogs and pretzels, and that incorporate ethnically diverse and/or healthy food choices." That noise you hear? The Van Leeuwen truck idling in the background.
