Patacon Pisao made its first Vendy appearance as one of the five finalists in the 2010 Vendy Awards. The Patacon Pisao truck is normally parked on West 202nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenue. Founded in 2005, Liliana Velasquez and Adolfo Gonzoalez serve authentic Venezuelan street food, most notably their patacon, a sandiwhc that replaces bread with fried, pressed green plaintain.

The 6th Annual Vendy Awards were held on September 25, 2010 on Governor’s Island. Called "the Oscars of food for the real New York" by Chef Mario Batali, the Vendy Awards are New York City’s annual competition for the title of Best Street Food Vendor, and a fundraiser to support the Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center. The Vendy Awards are given out in three categories at festival which doubles as an all-day cook-off between the best sidewalk chefs in the City.

A panel of judges awards one of five finalists the Vendy Cup and title of Vendy Award Winner, an honor that went to the King of Falafel and Shawarma. Vendy attendees vote to choose the People’s Taste Award winner from the finalists, an honor that also went to the King of Falafel and Shawarma. Audience vote also determines the winners in the Dessert Category, an honor that went to Kelvin Natural Slush Co, and in the Rookie Category, which went to Souvlaki GR.

Just blocks from P.S. 1 is 5 Pointz, the Institute of Higher Burnin’. Not a museum or gallery, 5 Pointz is a living collage of graffiti art covering a converted warehouse full of artist studios. The art of famous and novice graffiti artists covers the building’s facade, all done with the encouragement of the building’s owner. It’s a well-known sight from the elevated 7 subway, which runs behind 5 Pointz.
