DOH Chronicles: Save the Dragonas Street Cart!

New, 2 comments

Last week veteran Midtown street vendor Tony Dragonas made the news when the Times learned that the DOH wants to close down his operation in order to "protect he public health." According to reps from the DOH, the cart received 19 violations last year, and Dragonas has not fixed the problems. Naturally, his fans, street cart fanatics, and the ever-present advocate the Street Vendor Project aren't taking this lying down and maintain the complaints are coming from a "jealous restaurateur". The above video, a kind of a call to arms, shows that a) New Yorkers could care less about his DOH fines, and b) the Dragonas cart isn't just a spot for a cheap lunch; rather, it's a "New York institution."
