What happened to the Grand Central churros?

  • 5

Does anyone know what happened to the churros vendors who used to set up shop in the subway station at Grand Central?

For years I ran into them fairly reliably in the passageway between the 7 train and the 4/5/6 trains, but I haven't seen them for months. I fear they were chased away by cops checking for permits or something like that.

3 churros for a buck, with the grease leaking through the bag, crunchy and sugary... mmm, the perfect afternoon snack. I miss them.
