Eyes on the Street

Running the Christmas Tree Gauntlet

1:46 PM EST on December 14, 2007

Dear DOT Commissioner Santa-Khan,

All I want for Christmas next year is a new set of rules encouraging tree vendors to set up shop on the street in curbside parking space rather than jamming up New York City's crowded, holiday-season sidewalks.

Sincerely,

Aaron
