The head of Brooklyn Bridge Park was caught on video ordering a pair of artists looking to hawk their wares in the new urban oasis to take a hike -- unaware that art vending in city parks is legal, according to the New York Post.
Regina Myer, president of the city development corporation that runs the waterfront park, can be seen in the video, which was posted on YouTube after the embarrassing Sept. 25 exchange at Pier 1, telling Brooklyn artists E.K. Buckley and Sarah Valarie to pack up their merchandise and get out because they didn't have a permit.
The city yesterday confirmed Myer erred.
