All street vendors are heroes, but only very few get recognized for it. Sometimes they save a city from likely calamity and end up getting phone calls from President Obama. Other times they see something, say something, and it turns out to be false alarm, like this guy near Fordham University yesterday. Sometimes they rescue pigeons.
Whatever it is, SVP is working to get vendors recognized for their overall heroism, which is why we’ll have a non-culinary award category at this year’s Vendy Awards, as we discussed recently on radio here and in print here. Now go nominate your favorite vendor here.
