"Street Vendors-Water doesn't cost over $2.00" Street Vendors Tip by Erica83

Street Vendors, New York City: 11 reviews and 3 photos

If you are coming to New York City, the biggest problem I hear from a few friends of mine is that New York is really expensive...Those Famous New York Streets "Hot Dog Vendors" you see them almost everywhere,selling things for outrageous prices like $2.00 for small bottle of water or can of soda. Even more for hot dogs or food especially around the holidays. It's even happen to me. They want to take your money.

Unique Suggestions: Don't feel bad to just walk away to the next place...if they give you a tottally outrageous price for a bottle of water or can of soda. Because sooner or later $1 can come in handy with other things such as Taxi's..

Fun Alternatives: If you end up needing a bottle of water go to a local store, or duane reade, CVS...ETC . a larger bottle of water will cost you about $1.19..
