The cart has returned. The operators said that the cart left for a thorough cleaning in preparation for an inspection. When asked how they can pass the upcoming inspection given the size of their cart and the new city regulations (see below), they did not have a good answer, stating, “I do not know. I do not own this (cart).”

The Department of Consumer Affairs passed new regulations limiting the size of vendor carts, such as hotdog carts or doughnut huts. At the Northeast corner of Albany Street and South End Avenue has been a permanent, never leaving, doughnut/coffee hut for years. It is no longer there as of today.
BatteryPark.TV was not involved in the eviction of the doughnut hut. The manager of the nearby Hudson Produce was also unaware that the hut was gone. Whether more business is driven to the nearby restaurants, such as Izzy & Nat’s or Hudson produce, remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
