NYPD Cites Met Vendors


As the allure of cartography grows, so does the Man’s interest. The NYPD issued seven summonses today against food carts parked near the Metropolitan Museum of Art because vendors “positioned their carts beyond the curb line,” the police told City Room. One cart, operated by a 40-year-old veteran, was shut down for having the wrong type of food permit. But consider this statement from the Met: “As visitors have been reporting to us by phone, and in letters and e-mails, they are finding it increasingly difficult to enter the building, and almost impossible to exit at the end of the day.” Did the museum call the fuzz?
