'Tis the Season for Roasted Chestnuts

Roasted chestnuts, NYC
Photo by myself on Fifth Avenue, in Midtown

Some food vendors serve up roasted chestnuts during holiday time.

The New York Daily News wrote recently that few food vendors in New York offer roasted chestnuts. I hope this does not become a tradition of the past.

The vendors that do serve chestnuts are mostly located along Fifth Avenue between 65th and 42nd Streets, that is, in areas highly trafficked by tourists.

I don't see sheer ecstasy in those faces . . . . I guess choosing a chestnut is hard work.
