Wednesday What The What: Stop And Smell The Illegal Roses


Flower vendor on corner of Ocean Pkwy and Avenue S
Apparently, the police have been cracking down on illegal flower vendors throughout Brooklyn.
Florists complained that unlicensed flower stands were costing them between $5,000 and $10,000 a week, according to TLJ-News.  Around holidays, that number skyrockets. The unregistered florists don’t pay taxes on their businesses.
So, does a rose smell just as sweet if sold by an unregistered florist or are we doing a disservice to our local shops by buying from the street?
