    Seems as though it all ended well enough. Surely some common sense and decency do still exist.

    What do you expect in NYC? I'm surprised you don't need a permit to breathe.

    I lived just a few blocks away from there for a while... it is a nice spot.

    Requiring permits and health code enforcement for street food vendors is good for NYC to do. That being said, a 10 year old selling lemonade is hardly worth worrying about. A ticket? come on...

    Those hot dog stands have to pay the city BIG BUCKS to have exclusive use of their spots:

    NYC hot dog vendor evicted over whopping rent bill | Sinecta.com

    NEW YORK – Homeowners aren’t the only ones in hot water over overpriced real estate. A New York City hot dog vendor has been evicted from his prize spot outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art because he couldn’t pay a whopping rent bill of nearly $54,000 a month.

    Snack cart owner Pasang Sherpa of Queens had a deal with the city’s parks department that required him to pay almost $643,000 per year for the vending rights near the museum steps.

    He says he was $310,000 behind on his payments when he was evicted.

    The Parks Department had auctioned off the rights to the spot last year.

    54000 dollars a month, thats insane. How many friggin hot dogs do u have to sell to make a profit. You could get a house and spend half that a year. Maybe we should get into the hotdog business since it apparently should make lots of money.

    Just goes to show that many of our "public servants" ain't doing anything but following the letter of the law. They don't think, they don't care. If your I's ain't dotted and your T's ain't crossed you're fair game. Another reason I hate to hear about a law that the responsible legislative body describes as one of those that will be left to the officers "discretion" whether or not to apply. Most of those just get used to intimidate the general public with the threat that it could be applied. The IDIOTS in Illinois passed a law stating that it was illegal to possess (in your vehicle) any piece of hose that could be used to siphon gas. Guess what? If you get pulled over on your way home from the pet shop with a couple of feet of hose for use in cleaning your fish tank and you've done nothing else against the law and you're not "respectful" enough to suit the officer he can cite you for it. And they wonder why some people disrespect the police?
