How much would you pay for this cart? $500? $1,000?

At Bari Restaurant & Pizzeria Equipment Corp. at 240 Bowery in the Lower East Side, this portable hot dog stand retails for $1,900.

According to a 2006 survey of 100 vendors in Lower Manhattan by the Street Vendor Project, the average street vendor earns an income of only $7,500 per year.

Is this machine worth 25% of net yearly income? Is it worth $1,900 at all?

If you live in New York City and make it a point to keep track of the annual Vendy Awards, please also support The Street Vendor Project. A project of the Urban Justice Center, the organization provides year-round legal counseling and support for street and mobile vendors in the NYC area, most from underrepresented groups.
If you’re a vendor and would like to attend the monthly group meeting, please meet us at the main office at 7:30pm on Tuesday, May 8th. The address is 123 Williams Street on the 16th floor.
