New York City limits Art Vendors in NY Parks

The Department of Parks and Recreation is planning to slice the number of vendors allowed at some of Manhattan’s busiest parks like Central Park, Union Square Park, Battery Park and the High Line Park. Bloomberg administration proposes on Friday to cut their numbers by 75 percent. Among reasons behind the decision are suggestions that vendors block sidewalks and slow down pedestrians. Even if it is not a clear move against artists, the decision will slightly limit places where people can sell art.
