New York City vendors are one of the many things we love/hate about the city. Everyone has a story of some amazing/crazy street vendor experience. The Street Vendor Project has put together a visual guide for vendor regulations, rights and history and it looks amazing. Working with the Center for Urban Pedagogy designer Candy Chang put together all the information that goes into vending life (there's a lot). I now know enough to open up my own stand and battle off the cops when they try to slap a fine for on my ass for the distance between the cart and the curb. Seriously, the street has rules! You can check out a PDF sample here. If you read anything on the graph, make sure to read the sample stories at the bottom. Really interesting and heart breaking tales of what life as a vendor holds.
