The high price for vendor rights in NYC

Gary did a posting about a girl selling lemonade in a NYC park - she was issued a ticket for not having a vendor permit.

Now we know why.

From the NY Times

The city once earned more than half a million dollars a year in vending rights from two hot dog carts in front of the museum. Then, two years ago, a third vendor, Dan Rossi, nosed his cart onto the property, saying that as a disabled veteran, he had the right to be there without paying the city a dime.

I guess NY has to make money any way it can.
