Harlem/Diversey hot dog cart

A few years back, there was a hot dog cart near Harlem and Diversey. It actually was a block north of Diversey on Harlem, in front of a Hollywood Video. It was run by a nice Polish man who served hot dogs and polish cooked on a grill on fresh bakery rolls. I remember at the time, the local village trustees (it was on the Elmwood Park side of Harlem) were trying to get him out of town, siting health concerns etc. I moved back into the area, and haven't seen him in a long time. The village probably succeeded in getting him out, as there's a concrete flower planter sitting right where his cart used to be. Does anyone remember this guy, and possibly where he might have moved to? He had some of the best hot dogs.

On the flip side, if you don't remember this guy in particular, any good tips on other hot dog vendors with carts in the area?
