With Fort Tilden sadly washed away for at least a year, the Sauron-like all-seeing eye of jorts-bedecked young people has to find another somewhat secluded beach to do their young people things at. Fortunately, Jacob Riis beach is right next door and is enough of a pain in the ass to get to that it’s not overcrowded. And joining you on your bikini adventures this summer will be a slew of food trucks.
As first reported by Crain’s, the city and the National Park Service put out a request for bids from food truck vendors, and they’ve made their decision. So now in addition to the 30s-era bathhouse designed by evil genius Robert Moses, every Sunday in June, you’ll be able to wander among Eddie’s Pizza, Rickshaw Dumpling (not actually a rickshw) and Pura Vida, who are purveyors of smoothies and other healthy things that you’ll wish you had eaten before getting self-conscious about your beach body. The July schedule is up in the air, and Crain’s also reports that there may be a couple more food trucks selected in the works. Sounds great, now if summer would only get here.
