Yesterday morning, the NYPD raided Canal street and the “Counterfeit Triangle” and seized more than $1 million in conterfeit merchandise bearing the logos of Burberry, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Coach, Prada, Fendi, Rolex, Calvin Klein, and Louis Vuitton.

There were 32 storefronts illegally selling fake goods in three buildings all owned by Vincent Terranova, who apparently had knowledge of the illegal operations.

This is a great development, but there have been busts in the past and counterfeiters have not been deterred…We still have problems in the WTC area (near Century 21), the Seaport, and often the Union Square area.

I can’t tell you how many times I get asked if I want a freaking handbag…keep up the good work NYC…now if only ebay could do some spring cleaning we would be good!
