Vendor Power! A Guide To Street Vending in New York City


Making Policy Public is a program of the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP). CUP partners with policy advocates and graphic designers to produce foldout posters that explain complicated policy issues, like this one.

The Street Vendor Project, part of the Urban Justice Center, is a membership-based organization of more than 700 vendors who work together to protect the rights of vendors and promote vendor-friendly reform.

Candy Chang likes to make city information more accessible and engaging through design and creative use of public space.

“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it’s wet.”
“You owe the companies nothing. You especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.”
- Banksy
