Need churros "to go"... street style maybe?

I searched the Board before posting this, and only came up with places that serve churros as part of a sit-down thing...

I need to buy some to serve and will go anywhere! (I am in Morningside Heights, so E. 116th Street would be a breeze...)

Anyone know a street vendor? Shop? Bakery? Anything?

Much appreciated!

    1. If you are willing to go to the outer boroughs, Costo in Queens sells them at their take-out food section which is separate from the store.

      1. There are churros vendors at the Canal Street J/M/Z station and the 53rd St E/V, but there are also Mexican bakeries in Hell's Kitchen who should be able to help you.

          I bought some good ones recently on the platform at grand central on the 4, 5, 6 line. it was in the morning so still fresh.

            I have never seen churro vendors in Chinatown, in what corner do they stand?

            When you say 53rd St E/V, do you mean inside the subway station? I have seen some churros sellers (although not for a while) in some subway platforms but the churros are usually dry, cold and "oldish." Even if you take them home and heat they will just become a greasy mess (I know because I have tried it.) It's best to find a vendor who has freshy fried ones.

              The vendors are inside the Canal St. train station on the J/M/Z platform. I haven't purchased the churros, only seen them.

          2. There's usually someone selling them on the L train subway platform at 14th st and 6th avenue in the late afternoon, especially on weekends.
