Just fact checking. Ali's cart is the one further down Cedar and across from The People Staged? He ran a wire or was just charging phones? Was fined $2,000 for that?
I know the second food cart from the intersection of Cedar and Broadway was fined $1,000 for there "being" a generator (not his) next to his cart with a wire to media tent. Don't know if that generator was seized. This was about a week ago.

Aly has been targeted multiple times by the police for sympathizing and working with us. Most recently fined $2000 and generator seized: http://gothamist.com/2011/11/04/fdny_nypd_seize_food_vendors_genera.php
