NYC Then & Now: Sweet Street-Side Vendors

Thankfully, Mayor Bloomie hasn't yet decided to rid New York City of its charming street-side convenience vendors, where you can pick up a newspaper, gum, pop or pack of smokes without having to stop in the neighborhood Duane Reede. Of course, NYC's Dictator has done his share of damage: That same pack of cigarettes that cost 25 cents in 1945 is now $12. Alas, this remains a sweet site of the city. *
