    New Yorkers are used to instant gratification — we want our coffee served before we can say "with room for milk," we need a cab the moment our arm reaches its full extension (unless, of course, it's the dreaded 5 p.m. shift switch), and we'll be damned if we've got to wait more than 20 minutes for an outdoor table at a popular restaurant during brunch hours. But our fast-fix obsession doesn't mean we're looking to skimp on quality. And we've found the perfect solution in five beloved NYC food trucks — quickly served gourmet dishes that aren't short on flavor but also don't break the bank.

The New York Celebs We Talked About in 2014

It's been a whirlwind year for New York City. A polar vortex froze over the winter months (literally), the ebola epidemic made a brief (yet frightening) appearance, and Eric Garner's death raised concerns over law enforcement's power over the civilians it's meant to protect. And, while New York current events dominated read
