Some other fishwraps unwelcome in Times Mirror Square

JM, red tagged on Spring Street, 2.11.09

Sauntering down Spring Street this morning, what do I discover on the sidewalk, out in front of the offices of the former local fishwrap of record, but a bunch of newsracks tagged as violating civic code...

No, none of the Times own family of newsstands received violation notices, nor did the Downtown News---but the Daily News's sure did.

UPDATE: an editor tells us that Councilmember Greig Smith introduced the City's newsrack ordinance three years ago. This is the way the City treats its fledgling businesses.
