Tired of getting hassled by street vendors every time you walk around the Diamond District? According to the Post, those days may be coming to an end, as the NYPD has vowed to crackdown on the hordes of extremely insistent salesman that crowd the sidewalks and try to steal customers from stores in the area. The police department also plans to arrest vendors who try to hawk their goods to motorists stuck in traffic. Good, now there's absolutely nothing standing in the way of you and a peaceful diamond-buying experience! [NYP]
