BAY RIDGE — The food vendor war is a citywide problem that isn’t going to be solved unless New York officials put in new rules, Community Board 10 Chair Joanne Seminara said as the conflict between sidewalk vendors and brick-and-mortar business owners entered a new phase.
“This is much bigger than Bay Ridge. It is citywide. It has to be ironed out,” Seminara told board members at their May 21 meeting. “Until the law changes, I don’t see it getting resolved.”
