NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 14: Jerry Delakas, who has run a newspaper stand at Astor Place since the 1970s, enters his stand after being barred from working at the stand for 11 months, on January 14, 2014 in New York City. For years, Delakas rented the stand from a husband and wife duo who eventually passed away, but gave Delakas the license to the stand in their will. In 2011, city officials said Delakas was running the stand illegally, and eventually forced him to shut the stand down. In an attempt to petition city officials Delakas and a neighborhood supporter, Kelly King, recently waited hours in the rain to meet newly inaugerated mayor Bill De Blasio at Gracie Mansion during an open house. De Blasio said he had heard of Delakas' plight, and arranged for the stand to be reopened for Delakas. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
