David Weber, President of the NYC Food Trucks Association (NYCFTA), and founding member of Rickshaw Dumplings, and joins THE FOOD SEEN to discuss a pressing matter. The NYPD has recently been asked to enforce a 1950’s Transportation Department regulation that states, “no vendor, hawker or huckster shall park a vehicle at a metered parking space to offer merchandise for sale from the vehicle”, effectively threatening the food truck street presence in Midtown Manhattan, as well as in all 5 boroughs.
