Jackson Heights – Tamales and Champurrado

Took a short walk this morning by the hospital where I am working.  Every morning three women push their shopping carts to this area by the 7 train and sell tamales and (i finally learned this today) champurrado. “Champurrado is a chocolate-based atole, a warm and thick Mexican drink, based on masa (hominy flour), piloncillo, water or milk and occasionally containing cinnamon, anise seed and or vanilla bean.” according to Wikipedia.  Looking forward to trying it.
