Celebrate Reduced Street Vendor Fines With The SVP At The “Great Street Meet”


As we told you last week, the City Council voted to reduce the top street vendor fines from $1,000 to $500. The vote was 44-3. Not exactly a squeaker.

You can help celebrate this momentous event with the Street Vendor Project at their annual gala, now dubbed the “Great Street Meat”.

Of course there will be great New York street vendors there as well, including several Vendy Award winners.
