We saw that DNAinfo reported that Freddy, the King of Falafel, is putting together another truck and will bring it to LIC! The truck will be parked on Crescent by 41st Ave. This is a pretty busy section of the Dutch Kills area of LIC, and it’s a pretty strategic location—there are lots of residences nearby, from sparkly new condos to the Queensbridge Houses just blocks away. His truck also gives the office workers in the area another choice for lunch.


The truck “will operate seven days a week and even offer delivery nearby.” Bonus for everyone who likes good food in the area. And he’s not stopping there—he wants to expand his business to have trucks in the Bronx, other parts of Queens, and on Long Island; he already has a presence in multiple locations in Astoria and also in Manhattan. Sounds like the LIC truck will be up and running in early 2017.

Good luck, King! This is gonna be huge for LIC!

this is an insane block, good luck to them.

While there is plenty of new development and you have some larger business complexes, there is even more going on in Court Square.
