Who are your favorite Vendies?

Summer, especially, is the season of street vending. While street umbrellas are at hand when it rains regardless, and there's almost always coffee or a hot dog to be had, commodities like Italian ice or fresh fruit have definite temperature constraints.
To an outsider, one halal cart might look like any other, and to the restaurant it sits in front of, the cart may be a nuisance. But to the customers who frequent these stands day in and day out, these vendors are a familiar and welcome site. They may even become a part of the landscape itself.
On Sept. 29, these vendors will be recognized at the Third Annual Vendy Awards, a cook-off and fundraiser for the Street Vendor Project, a non-profit for street vendor rights.
Residents from the Northwest Bronx and across the city must nominate their favorite vendors by Sept. 1, but it would be great to also mention them here, in the comments.
The Norwood News will publish a special supplement in the fall and would love to include your feedback on the area's best and beloved street vendors. (Photos by Laura Sayer)
