Jerry Seinfeld’s son had his charity lemonade stand shut down by police after neighbors complained. Seinfeld’s son set up a lemonade stand along the roadway of their Strong Island home. The comic’s residence is located in the upscale Hampton’s area near New York City.
The Seinfeld lemonade stand was reportedly set up in a location where city code prohibits any type of “peddling.” Neighbors complained about a series of cars illegally parked while stopping to buy a glass of lemonade for charity from Jerry’s son, according to MSN.
The Baby Buggy charity was able to garner some funds before “Johnny Law” made Jerry Seinfeld’s son pack up his lemons. The charity was created by Jessica Seinfeld, the actor’s wife, and provides clothing to families in need, the New York Daily News reports. A photo taken by Jessica showed Jerry, 61, and the kids with their hands behind their heads, mocking their new lawbreaker status. The charity lemonade stand shut down photo was posted to Instagram.

“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” Jessica Seinfeld posted to social media. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers! thanks Xander and Jaden for crushing it today with Julian and Jerry.”

The Baby Buggy charity’s motto is “love recycled.” The charity’s goals and objectives are clearly noted on the official Baby Buggy website.
“Baby Buggy takes an innovative child-focused approach to curbing generational poverty by linking access to critical child gear items to parental participation in programs designed to lift the family out of poverty. Together, the services and the items add up to far greater impact. Our donations, which are distributed to a network of over 100 community-based organizations across the country, help to offset the high cost of providing for infants and young children at a critical stage in a family’s life. For example: A mom receives a stroller after demonstrating that she has opened an education savings account for her child. A father receives a crib after participating in a 16-week fatherhood program that includes completing an infant CPR class and a healthy relationship workshop.”
The Jerry Seinfeld lemonade stand shut down is just one in a growing line of old-fashioned, money-making endeavors typically undertaken by children which are no longer allowed in a plethora of cities across the country.
