Local teens out of business after 'cupcake fiasco'

Four local teens are without a way to make money after their bake sale in a local park was shut down by the police for selling without a permit.

The teens were selling brownies, cookies and of course cupcakes, to make a little money in Chappaqua's Gedney Park last month when New Castle Councilman Michael Wolfensohn saw the bake sale and called the cops, assuming the teens didn?t have a permit.

When police arrived, they discovered that Wolfensohn was right and they were kicked out of the park.

The teens tried to apply for a permit, but found out it would cost hundreds of dollars and require a million-dollar insurance policy.

Wolfensohn says that he regrets calling the police and wishes he had talked to the kids instead.

For now the teens are looking for a new place to set up their stand.
