Halal Cart on 53rd and 6th

This Halal cart is easily the most popular one in Manhattan. Well, actually, there are five carts affiliated with these guys, three of which are at or around this intersection – one on the southwest corner, one on the southeast, and another on the northwest corner of 52nd and 6th. This one is the original late night cart at the southwest corner and it’s still the busiest one. Which makes no sense really since the one on the southeast corner has a much shorter line and the one on 52nd and 6th almost never has a line. It’s always an interesting mix of people waiting on line here. In the photo above, it’s mostly people fortifying their stomachs before heading off for a night of drinking but mixed in are some cabbies and just people looking for a cheap meal.
