New Food + Drink Option Comes to Prospect Park
April 22, 2022
Prospect Park Alliance has announced new food and drink options coming to Prospect Park. Blank Street, a Brooklyn-based coffee company, will introduce their environmentally friendly, battery-powered carts at two locations in the park. The Bartel-Pritchard Squar Park Entrance cart will open on Monday, April 25, and the second cart, located at the Lincoln Road Park Entrance, will open in May. The carts will offer coffee, tea, pastries and tacos, and will be open daily from 8 am to 4 pm year round.
Each cart’s opening day will be celebrated with free coffee for the community!
“We know that Prospect Park patrons want more food options in the park, which is why we invited proposals from vendors who could provide affordable, healthy and sustainable options for the community,” said James Snow, Prospect Park Alliance Interim President. “We are pleased to welcome two of Blank Street’s innovative carts to the park where they can be an amenity for visitors looking for a bite and a beverage with a light environmental footprint.”
Founded in Williamsburg in August 2020, Blank Street passionately believes in doing more with less – less waste, less energy – in order to invest in what matters most: offering the highest quality products at the lowest prices; providing higher wages for their team of baristas; operating with state-of-the-art coffee technology and an order-ahead mobile app; and designing their business to operate as lightly upon the earth as possible, from their carts to their cups.
The menu offers a daily selection of coffee and tea drinks and sweet and savory bites from celebrated local brands such as Parlor Coffee, King David Tacos, Pain D’Avignon, and King Street Baking Co.
In addition to Blank Street, the Alliance has brought King David Tacos to Grand Army Plaza, Smorgasburg to Breeze Hill, Bluestone Cafe to Lakeside, as well as the Mohammed Islam Hot Dog Cart to the Ballfields. WINNER Prospect Park is slated to open at the Prospect Park Picnic House in early May. Learn more about food options at prospectpark.org/food.
