Councilwoman Ung, DCWP commissioner discuss growing street vendor presence in Flushing


Queens Councilwoman Sandra Ung and Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) Commissioner Vilda Vera Mayuga walked through Main Street in downtown Flushing on April 12 to discuss the proliferation of street vendors in the area.

Ung expressed concern over the growing number of vendors and several businesses using the sidewalk space to sell their merchandise. The lawmaker said that both of these factors have made it difficult for people to navigate walking along the sidewalks.
