Vigilantes Enforce Vending-Permit Laws in Park Slope


Mobilized by an upset e-mail from the shop’s proprietor, patrons of the Community Bookstore on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope “strongly encouraged” a street vendor who’d set up his own table of books directly outside to head elsewhere, because he was threatening the welfare of the shop. After a couple of days, it was clear that the street vendor “would not be coming back.” You people like books. Read between the lines. [Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn]
