the streets

Soggy Stromboli

I was eating a salad on 51st and Park yesterday when I noticed more than the usual lunchtime puff of smoke wafting from the nearby pizza truck. Turns out Jianettos Pizza & Catering cart was ablaze! Midtown bystanders looked on with their classic “wow that looks bad, hope someone does something” poses.

Fortunately NYC’s finest arrived in moments and set to work drenching and smashing the shit out of the cart.

Here, they pause for a meatball sub order.

I was genuinely impressed with the response time, considering all the recent hubbub over the FDNY letting things like this go down. Fallen grannies verses burning pizza wagon?

Pizza wagon wins.
