Midtown Lunch reports on two street-vendor squabbles that happened last Friday: A hot-dog vendor was dragged off in cuffs after he rammed his cart against the Miss Softee truck, breaking two windows; and a witness says a worker in the Uncle Gussy’s truck “was threatening physical violence” during a dispute with the Taïm Mobile truck. Meanwhile, the Post reports on a turf war going on in Queens. After opposing reputed Gambino family member Joe Franco’s plans to expand the White House catering hall, a neighbor says he received a seemingly threatening letter. Franco denies knowing anything about the letter and says he isn’t a gangster.
