NYC: Violent brawl erupts after man chucks plant at NYC coffee cart

A vagrant got into a brawl with a Manhattan coffee vendor after chucking a small bush he had yanked out of a planter at the man’s cart Friday, according to a witness and video from the scene.

The fracas unfolded at Astor Place and Lafayette Street in Noho when the man, wearing a winter hat, surgical mask, and a brown jacket over a lighter-colored hoodie walked across the street clutching the plant, with soil and roots still attached to the bottom.

A 37-year-old witness named Matt, who said he is a local doctor and resident, told The Post he was on the second floor of the nearby New York Sports Club when he saw the man walking with the plant and took a photo.
