A food-truck lot, in a parking lot at 43-29 Crescent Street in Long Island City, Queens will open in two weeks as a daily home for five trucks, and the group is looking for more locations.

The Queens lot is near Citibank offices full of potential customers. Ten trucks have expressed interest, including Rickshaw Dumpling Truck, the Treats Truck, the Milk Truck and Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Soooooooooo, if anyone gets a chance to get to it when they open, please post a review for the rest of us and let us know which food trucks are actually there :-)

    I'm so there! My office moved several months ago and there is really nothing over here. We were told how up and coming LIC is, but Queens Plaza is nowhere near there for a 1 hour lunch.
    The food truck park will only be a few blocks away. I'm hoping people take the walk over there so it becomes a permament fixture! I know I'll do my share.

      So here's their Facebook page:

      It's closed for the winter, and it looks like towards the end of the season last year they were only open 3 days a week; My son is starting a job with Citi in June and is really going to miss the food trucks he frequented last summer when he had an internship on Wall Street!

        Their Facebook page is silent. Are they open again this year, or is anyone there in their place?
