Upper East Side tamales in the 70s?

Ike | May 1, 2014 10:52 AM

There used to be a great tamale lady on 75th St. near 3rd Ave. every other Wednesday morning or so (or maybe it was Thursdays?), but I haven't seen her for the past few months. Any other tamale vendors in the East 70s or maybe the East 80s?

Other hounds have mentioned that there is a good tamale lady near the 96th St. subway station but I don't think I can get that far without being late for work. (I always SAY I'm going to leave early for work so I can take a quick detour but it almost never actually happens. Heh.)
