Sunset Park, BROOKLYN (PIX11) – Thousands of New Yorkers skipped the fancy restaurants and went to Sunset Park in Brooklyn to find the best eats in town.

An industrial area provided a backdrop for the 9th annual Vendy Awards.

Sean Basinski, director of the Street Vendor Project, which puts on this food festival, says this year there are over 20 delectable choices.

“vendy’s is a competition for street food vendors in the city, which we think means best food vendors in the world,” Basinski said.

The simple word “food” hardly encompasses everything offered at the Vendy’s which had plenty of choices for everyone to sample.
