A 10-year-old girl in Riverside Park was slapped with a fine for setting up a lemonade stand without a permit Saturday.
Opening a lemonade stand has been Clementine Lee’s dream since last year. She decided to take advantage of the day’s nice weather to finally set up shop with her 49-year-old father, Richard.
“It was such a hot day I figured people would want a cold drink,” Lee told the New York Post.
The stand was set up on West 73rd Street and Riverside Drive, and for the first 20 minutes, business was booming–they two sold 10 glasses of lemonade for 50 cents each, along with the dozen chocolate chip cookies they baked.
