[VIDEO] New York City Food Carts Could Soon Get Letter Grades from Health Department

One great thing about NYC restaurants is that you can generally tell how clean and food-safe it is without stepping a foot inside, thanks to the mandatory posting of Health Department letter grades. In this video from producer Bailey Bryant for The Ink, learn how a new City Council bill would do the same for New York City's numerous street-side food carts.

A new bill could take the guesswork out of your street gyro. Earlier this month, Queens City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz introduced a bill that would force food carts and trucks to post letter grades following their health department inspections. City restaurants have been required to post letter grades, which range from A to C, since 2010.

The idea is not new, but could this be the time it finally happens?
