Astor Place was rendered incomplete today when the bright orange Mud Truck, a hyperlocal landmark, prematurely left its usual spot with a DOH sticker clinging to its shell. Eater reported that the truck took care of the morning rush but left before the 3 p.m. recharge. At least for now, those in the immediate vicinity may need to settle for, dare we suggest, Starbucks.
We hope it’s nothing serious since Mud often fuels the Voice. Can rodents climb into a truck? If anyone has more details, let us know in the comments.
