The Batman-esque Crifmobile is motoring to the northeast corner of Houston and Elizabeth Streets. With the former Billy’s Antiques parcel stagnating in the wake of owner Tony Goldman’s death last fall, the popular East Village hot dog hut is hoping to park its truck here. Alongside a portable toilet.

Crif Dogs partner Brian Shehairo will appear before Community Board 2 next month to argue why this food truck needs full liquor privileges. As for the three-story replacement building which is planned for 76 East Houston, that whole idea remains in limbo. According to Billy Leroy, he’s heard nothing new about the start of construction on the spot. In the meantime, the fenced-off corner continues to attract its fair share of graffiti.
