Around lunchtime today, one of the other Editors I work with asked me if I knew where she could get some street meat near the office...As I pondered her query, I thought to myself, What the heck is street meat?!?!? After mulling over an appropriate response, I told her I saw a vendor near the Canal Street Subway. When she returned, street meat in hand, I asked her where she found it. She had to walk up to the next subway stop, Spring Street in SoHo.
Has anyone else heard this expression? This was a first for me. I have a very dirty mind, so I thought she meant the kind of meat that walks around on two legs--men! Yes, I am warped and twisted!!
For those of you not from NYC...There are vendors all over the city who sell meat, chicken, soda, coffee and breakfast food; sometimes there are several carts to choose from on the same block.
