Regulation of the Day 37: Lemonade Stands

It is illegal for children to sell lemonade in New York City without a permit.

Clementine Lee, 10, was recently fined $50 for selling lemonade in Riverside Park. Fortunately, “A spokesperson for the Parks Department says the agents showed poor judgment and that the ticket will be dismissed.”

This translates roughly to “we were getting too much bad publicity.”
