Street Hustling in New York

On every corner of every street there is some sort of stand selling something.  Bags, purses, toys, souvenirs, the ubiquitous pashmina scarves, and more.  And these are the ones in the day time.  At night a whole new species of street vendors comes out with their “designer” bags on big blankets.  I found out the reason they have them displayed on blankets is easy open and easy grab and close up quickly when the police come by to tell them to move; especially if they don’t have a permit for selling.  We actually saw that happen once and they were fast.



Ok, seriously? What designer?

  4. Aquí en España también lo vivimos, el otro día me quedé maravillada como un chico recogía las cosas en medio segundo al ver venir a la policía, lo mejor es que a los segundos vuelven a montarlo, abrazos
