Also, been annoyed by their business model...blocking streets and especially idling their trucks with their noisy refrigeration motors.  This morning a truck sat outside my window for 15 minutes at 8 am.  The NYC law is not to idle for more than 3 minutes. 

In short, it seems a great solution would be for FreshDirect to upgrade their fleet to more eco-friendly vehicles. That is very costly - perhaps they can be incentivized to do so through some mix of federal, state and city tax credits.

To be fair, the posts here about the idling trucks are 7 years old - Fresh Direct got in trouble for it and I think they are much better about it now.
