As promised the Hound tracked down the details on the new New York State Fair license plate at the DMV spot in the Center of Progress, near the sand sculpture.
You can order the plates, as well as work through other DMV functions, right there at the Fair. Standard initial fee is $43.75, $75 for personalized plates. If you want to keep your current number there is –wait for it—an additional charge. Then at renewal time, it’s an extra $30 per year, half of which goes to support NY tourism marketing. You would think that having “I (heart) NY,” and the State Fair logo would be support enough, but Cuomo wants your cash, too.
