New York police have shut down a charity lemonade stand run by Jerry Seinfeld and his family in their East Hampton neighborhood.

The group was selling lemonade to benefit their Baby Buggy charity, which focuses on providing families under financial strain with clothing, gear and services, the East Hampton Press reported.

Mr. Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica, posted a lighthearted photo on Instagram of Mr. Seinfeld, their son, Julian, and two friends with their hands behind their heads. An East Hampton Village Police can be seen in the background.

“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” Mrs. Seinfeld wrote in the caption. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers! Thanks, Xander and Jaden, for crushing it today with Julian and Jerry.”

Police Chief Jerry Larsen said a neighbor had complained about cars parked illegally at the spot on Egypt Lane, and that the Seinfelds were told their philanthropic efforts weren’t permitted under the village code, the New York Post reported.
