Occupy Wall Street Killing Street Vendors

Crime, Politics and Policy has learned of one street vendor who claimed to have suffered significant business losses because of the Occupy Wall Street occupation.

The vendor, whose identity and precise location are being kept confidential for safety reasons, had a foot cart situated within the metal barricades that surrounded Zuccotti Park.  Vendors' sidewalk spots are regulated by the City of New York.  This vendor had a peculiar problem: his spot was inside the barricades and as such, he would not be able to return to the spot inside the metal barriers if he removed the cart.  However, with belligerent protestors, homeless and other undesirables increasingly hovering, demanding he make change and tell them the time, he was compelled to occupy and staff his cart 24/7 within the metal barriers to protect his business.  

Yet, despite the full around-the-clock presence, the vendor said his business was down.  He blamed Occupy Wall Street for driving away his regular customers who were either scared of or physically repulsed by the protestors (or both).  Furthermore, he said the protestors were always getting free food and therefore had no need for his grub and  hot drinks.
