A recent survey shows where the food trucks and vendors camp out in the Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is a popular destination and a treasured community for those who live here, making it a prime destination in recent years for the city's burgeoning fleet of food trucks and street vendors. Community Board 8 recently sponsored a survey of the area and found a total of 179 vendors. On certain blocks, like on 68th Street between Park and 3rd Avenues, fruit and food vendors crowd the sidewalks, sometimes with four or five carts in a row.
