... Rolf Babiel, the bratwurst street vendor who calls 54th Street near Fifth Avenue home. On the Vendy nominee page, a fan describes what makes Rolf the man:
The food is cheap and fantastic. He offers his wares with a really crusty bun, two types of kraut, the BEST sauteed onions and homemade mustards and curry sauces. The line for the food is long, because it's THAT good.And thus endeth the first annual awards for best New York street vendors.
