NEW YORK (AP) - A well-known Manhattan housewares store has been ordered to stop selling merchandise associated with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The agency says Fishs Eddy is "unfairly reaping" a benefit from an association with the Port Authority.

It singled out dinnerware items decorated with depictions of the twin towers, the new World Trade Center and Lincoln and Holland tunnels, all labeled with the Port Authority's name.

The New York Times says a lawyer for the agency told the store in a letter last week to stop selling items with these "assets" on them. The letter also asked that the material "bearing the assets" be destroyed.

The store's owners say dropping the patterns will hurt their business.

    New York Fashion Week: weird and wonderful

    Modern dancers, writhing half-naked in front of giant weather-themed video installations. Miley Cyrus, not twerking, but working — in a new gig making jewelry with children's beads. A guy mowing a fake indoor lawn in a suit, top hat and fishnet tights. We didn't need to tell you that Fashion Week isn't only about hemlines and tailoring, did we? Some weird or wonderful (and sometimes both) moments of New York Fashion Week...
