Chin  Expanding the zone around the World Trade Center in which food and general vendors are prohibited.IntroductionThis bill expands the prohibited street vending zone around the World Trade Center to include existing security points.

Street vendors may still vend on the easterly and westerly sides of Broadway between Barclay Street and Vesey Street. Additionally, they may also vend on the easterly side of West St between Barclay St and Vesey St and on the southerly side of Barclay St between Church St and Broadway.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
