Juicy New York


No, not that kind of juice you dirty bugger.
But juicy as in energy.
Or fruit.
New York's giving out thousands of new licenses for fruit carts to be in the streets
in poorer neighborhoods.
To stem the consumption of junk food.
Some neighborhoods are eating unhealthier than others apparently.
The presence of fruit on the street corners is supposed to make mouths watering 
for a healthy apple instead of a big mac with fries.
Bad health costs the city large sums.
I just wonder if its going to work?
There are in fact fruit and vegetable stores in most neighborhoods after all.
But better try than not.
It certainly looks wonderful and mouth-watering.
The cart above is in Spring Street, SoHo, however, where fat people are tourists from Bronx.
