Introduction:
The SoHo Broadway Vending Guidebook is a handy resource for vendors
looking to vend within the SoHo Broadway Initiative’s business improvement
district, which is generally Broadway from Houston Street to Canal Street.
This Guidebook summarizes the laws that apply to vendors and brings them
together in one easy to use document to help vendors operate legally within the
SoHo Broadway business improvement district. The operation of a vending
business is generally governed by the City’s Administrative Code (AC) and the
Rules of the City of New York (RCNY). In developing this Guidebook, the
Initiative looked at the Administrative Code and Rules, reviewed the NYPD
Operations Order 39 of 2004 and spoke with members of the NYPD and
other interested parties who are familiar with the application of these rules.
Whether you’re a first time vendor or a vendor with years of experience, this
Guidebook has information you can use. The Guidebook includes a summary of
the laws and rules that govern the various types of vending with illustrations of
these rules and maps of the district showing where vending is generally allowed.
The guidebook does not include every law/rule and in particular does not include
laws/rules that are specific to disabled veteran vendors. While the guidebook is a
useful resource, a vendor should measure his or her location and check the
applicable law/rule to make sure he or she is in compliance.
Feel free to contact SoHo Broadway Initiative with any questions, clarifications
or suggestions on how to make this guidebook better.
Sincerely,
Mark Dicus
Executive Director
SoHo Broadway Initiative
