NYC Building Tenants Look to City Hall to Help Crush Hot Dog Vendor

The posh Upper West Side residents don't like that someone's selling hot dogs on the corner outside the building


It sounds like a plotline for an episode of "Seinfeld": a group of well-heeled Upper West Side residents take on the hot dog vendor — with hilarious results. But coop v. cart battle is no joke.

Residents of the Beresford on Central Park West — a stately co-op home to Jerry Seinfeld, himself, as well as to singer Diana Ross and tennis legend John McEnroe — are insisting that a hot dog vendor who has set up shop outside the exclusive building move his cart, sources told The Real Deal.
