Jerry Seinfeld Family’s Lemonade Stand Shut Down After Informant Squeals

We’ve seen lemonade stands shut down by the authorities again and again and again and again, apparently lest kids grow up thinking they can generate their own wealth rather than feed off the government. But surely a big shot celebrity like Jerry Seinfeld could get away with a lemonade stand — or maybe not. His family’s lemonade stand, set up in East Hampton to raise money for his wife’s charity, was shut down after a neighbor ratted them out to the authorities.

“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” wrote Ms. Seinfeld in the caption. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!” …

East Hampton Village Police Chief Jerry Larsen said police received a complaint about illegally parked vehicles at the location of the lemonade stand. At the scene, an officer advised the Seinfeld family that village code does not permit lemonade stands on village property. …

Ms. Seinfeld founded Baby Buggy in 2001. The organization focuses on providing families under financial strain with clothing, gear and services, and has donated 16 million items since its formation. Its motto is “Love Recycled,” hence its Instagram handle.

However, the privileges of fame still protect celebrities from less serious infractions, such as Al Sharpton’s refusal to pay the $4.5 million he owes in taxes, and the various crimes including mishandling of top secret information and destruction of evidence entailed in Shrillary Clinton’s email shenanigans.
