Six feet long, three feet wide

6 Jul 2010

A standard fruit and vegetable cart in New York City is about six feet by three feet. That’s not much public space to ask for. But even that can be too much for building owners who don’t want vendors on the sidewalk.

One technique that some building owners use is to place planters on the sidewalk to displace the vendors. That’s what happened to SVP member Mijandur Rahaman, who sells fruit on East 86th Street and Madison Avenue. But a few (illegal) planters on the sidewalk are no match for a 1,000 member organization. Watch what happened!
