City Comes Down Hard on Met Vendors

Need a real world example of what happens when too many vendors converge on a sought after spot previously occupied by one or two vendors at a time? The museum they’re parked in front of decides it’s too much, and rightly or wrongly the cops force everybody to leave. UPDATE: The Street Vendor Project weighs in on the issue.


  • Let’s see if we can get through the rest of the week without talking about vendor issues…isn’t it “Finding Lunch in the Food Wasteland of Midtown Manhattan”, and not “Let’s Worry When any Vendor in Midtown (and even not in midtown) Gets a Reality Check”?

  • This police bs is just that—bs. The CITY needs to step in immediately and pass some f’ing regs…This is so stupid.

  • When was this? My bus passes the met every day. I counted 3 hotdog carts, 1 empanadas and crepes cart, and 4 halal carts.
